From 16-21 July 2018 the Thistle U15 Girls team traveled to Gothenburg, Sweden to participate in the Gothia Cup, the world’s largest youth football tournament involving 1731 teams from 78 countries.  This was the first ever international tournament for the Thistle Girls program.  The team played 4 matches over 4 days including matches against some of the best teams from Sweden.  The girls performed admirably and proved to be strong competition for the more experienced opponents.  All of the Thistle girls, the coaches and the family members that attended the tournament had an outstanding time.  The entire experience is something the Thistle U15 Girls will surely remember for quite some time.
