CUMBERNAULD Colts welcomed top USA side PDA (Player Development Academy), New Jersey, to Broadwood on Monday, February 18.

The PDA are a partner club of Celtic FC who had asked the Colts to host the matches as part of the PDA’s visit to Scotland. The visitors from across the Atlantic were made most welcome by the club and were very impressed by the club’s facilities. Back-to-back games were played involving the club’s under 15s and under 16s, with both games proving to be a good workout for the clubs.

An excellent free-flowing first game saw the Colts under 15′s run out comfortable 2-0 winners. In the second game the Colts under 16s put up a spirited display but were eventually well beaten 5-1 by an athletic PDA side.

Both clubs hope to build on the visit with a reciprocal visit being planned for 2014.
