Athletic Extend Partnership With SD Oyonesa Through 2024
Over the years Athletic have built strong relationships with other clubs from around the Basque Country. In addition to helping grow local youth academies in the region, Athletic also benefit from a number of partnerships which bring new player to Lezama every season. Naturally, the majority of partnered clubs are located in Bizkaia but there are others from different provinces.
In 2009 Alava-based club Oyonesa signed a partnership with Athletic. Today the two clubs announced that the agreement has been extended through 2024 and will continue for another four seasons. The last player to join Lezama fro Oyonesa was Enrique González who made the switch last summer and was incorporated into Athletic’s Juvenil B squad.
The signing of the new contract was attended by Oyonesa president Manuel Martínez as well as Athletic’s Assistant Sporting Director Andoni Ayarza. Martín Urrejola and Txus Gojenuri, who oversee partnered clubs, were also present
