Academy to compete at Dallas Cup

The Club's Academy will be taking a squad to compete at the 31st Dallas Cup next year.

The tournament is due to take place between March 28 and April 4, 2010.

Academy manager John McDermott said: "Part of our academy policy has been to attend tournaments abroad and experience different footballing styles and cultures.

"Over the last three years, Academy squads have been as far afield as Mexico and Qatar as well as travelling extensively throughout Europe.

"We are really looking forward to this new challenge in Dallas. The Dallas Cup has a world class reputation and the purpose of us attending is our belief that our players will improve from the experiences gained both on and off the pitch."

The Dallas Cup has been taking place annually since 1980 with previous winners including Real Madrid, Sao Paulo and Liverpool.
