The 32 boys and girls left Nairobi last week and have been conducting their football trainings at Futbol Salou grounds located in Cambrils under the watchful eyes La Liga certified coaches; Ismael Rodriguez, Jose Ruiz, Luis Vincente Mateo and Oliver Dodd who is the La Liga representative to Kenya.

Miriam Lutomia, an All-Star player who turns out for Barcelona Ladies of Laikipia said ahead of the visist: “I am so thankful and glad for all these lifetime opportunities. I never imagined that one day I will set my foot in Camp Nou and see Iniesta Play. I am going back home motivated with more skills and stories to share with my team mates.”

The team will tomorrow play their second friendly match against Gimnastic de Tarragona which plays in the second division of the Spanish La Liga tournament before resuming their daily trainings.
