Barcelona Visit

7 August 2014

Two of RUCST’s gifted and talented young people from the Futsal Scholarship were recently given a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit Barcelona.

Hasan Bhatti and Hussein Salem along with other young futsal players from Plymouth, Brighton, Crew, Chelsea, Derby and Grimbsy attended Nou training camp in Barcelona. During the visit they took part in training sessions and also played against a Spanish futsal team. They also visited Barcelona Stadium and got a full tour of the stadium including going on pitch side.
Hasan has been accepted on the RUCST and Cardiff University Foundation degree in Community Football Coaching and Development. This foundation degree is supported by the Professional Footballer’s Association (PFA) and League Football Education (LFE).

Hasan said "I have had a great experience visiting Barcelona, it was really exciting and it was nice getting to know the lads that I met there. The staff were also great with us as they looked after us at all times. Myself and Hussein really enjoyed it and spoke about returning with the same lads again one day. Everyone were friendly because they treat us well. I am looking forward to continuing my education with RUCST and getting the continuous support from tutors Mark Wilkinson and Andy Warrington."
