Nine Players From Athletic Juvenil A Have Been Promoted To CD Basconia
Athletic Club’s Juvenil A team may very well be the most exciting generation of players to come through Lezama in the last decade. The Cachorros, led by manager Aritz Solabarrieta, won their league and made it all the way to the semifinals of the Copa del Juveniles before being eliminated by Atletico Madrid. Now that their season is over, the club has officially announced that several of the starlets have been promoted to feeder club CD Basconia.
On Tuesday Athletic announced that nine players have been promoted to Basconia and they are all completely deserving. The players are as follows:
Goalkeeper – Aritz De Miguel
Defender – Imanol García De Albéniz, Álvaro Nuñez
Midfielders – Gorka Agirre, Gorka Estrada
Forwards – Juan Artola, Rubén Azcona, Jon Cabo, Ewan Urain
The club also revealed that three more players from the Juvenil A team will get to spend the preseason with Bilbao Athletic. Defender Aitor Paredes, midfielder Unai Vencedor, and winger Asier Córdoba will all get that honor and will have the chance to fight for a place in Gaizka Garitano’s team. If they can’t carve out a spot in the squad they will also join CD Basconia. Of course, Oihan Sancet has also been invited to train with the first team this summer and is expected to play for Bilbao Athletic in the upcoming season. The future continues to look bright at Athletic thanks to the daily work being done at Lezama.
