SLOUGH Town Junior Under-14s had special guests from across the Atlantic ocean last weekend.

A team from the San Diego-based LA Galaxy Academy travelled to the United Kingdom for a 10-day trip, starting off with a stopover visit in Slough.

The 12 boys, along with their families and coaches, visited Arbour Park on Saturday for a training session with the Slough players before heading back into London to watch the Fulham game.

They returned on Sunday for a match, played in three periods and watched by a crowd of approximately 70.

The first period saw an early chance for the visitors with a striker through on goal but, after some good play, an unlucky finish was put wide in a let-off for Slough.

The Rebels responded well and a great delivery from a Taylor corner was headed against the bar by Joseph as the first period ended goalless.

Slough started on the front foot in the second period with some lovely play which the visitors coped with well after some strong defending.

The Rebels took the lead 10 minutes from the end of the period after a great run from left-back James saw him glide past two defenders,cut inside and lash an unstoppable shot into the corner.

The third period began with LA Galaxy taking the game to Slough, but a well-organised defensively display coped with what was thrown at them.

Slough added a second goal on the counter-attack when a great run and cross from Joseph was emphatically finished on the half-volley by Owen.

The final scores was 2-0 to the young Rebels but, more importantly it as a great day, a fantastic experience for all the boys and a great opportunity to make new friends.

Manager, Dave Tormey was proud of the organised performance from his boys against a very good side.

The LA Galaxy party have now headed to Cardiff and then up to the North West, before heading home this weekend.
