Lezama Signs 3 Starlets From Nafarroa
With youth football now over Athletic have been busy recruiting the next generation of players for the club. A number of starlets have already signed with Lezama over the past few weeks and more will follow. Athletic’s partnerships in Nafarroa have already yielded one promising player in Jesús Vizcay and now three others from the region will be moving to Bilbao.
As reported by La Cantera De Lezama, Athletic have signed Oberena duo Beñat García and Aritz Ortigosa along with Tudelano goalkeeper Simón García. Both products from Oberena have been key players in their team and the Nafarroa U14 side, while Simón García is widely regarded as one of the best goalkeepers of the 2007 generation.
The Oberena 2007 team has been exceptional this season and Beñat García and Aritz Ortigosa have played big roles in that success. García is a midfielder best known for his ability to play the ball while Ortigosa is a left-winger who can also function as a striker and is an impressive goalscorer for his age.
Beñat García and Aritz Ortigosa have been competing in youth tournaments with Athletic since last year and, along with Jesús Vizcay, give Oberena a total of three players joining Lezama next season. Athletic’s partnerships in Nafarroa continue to be fruitful in many areas.
