Adios Stranraer Academy!

IT WAS ADIOS Stranraer Academy for 18 lucky pupils on Tuesday morning as they jetted-off for a week in the Spanish sunshine.

The football-daft youngsters have flown to Madrid for a never-to-forget coaching course to be held in the playground of Europe's number one club side Real Madrid.

The thought of winning a contract with the European Champions may be more like a dream for the lads but they will experience eight days of professional training with the club's coaching staff as well as taking in the sights of the beautiful Spanish capital.

The bleary-eyed boys departed Stranraer at 6.30 a.m. on Tuesday morning and were due to arrive in Madrid at 5.30 p.m. accompanied by teachers Stuart Binnie and Peter Baird a far cry from the 13-hour trek they endured to stormy Stornoway in December!
