TWO teams from Pro Touch Soccer Academy overcame opposition from across Europe to reach the last eight of the prestigious Dana Cup in Denmark.

Pro Touch, who nurture young talent from the boroughs of Westminster and Camden, compete in the Dana Cup each year and were represented by their boys' under-12 and under-15 squads.

Both teams excelled in the group stages, with the Under-15s recording a 4-0 victory over Sund FC (Sweden) and following that with a 2-1 win over Aalesunds (Norway).

A 3-0 win against another Norwegian side, Egersunds, booked their place in the last 16 as group winners, where they defeated Sander IL, also from Norway, 6-2.

In the last eight, though, the under-15s met their match in a fourth con-secutive clash with Norwegian opposition, as Vidar FK squeezed them out 3-2.

The Pro Touch under-12s also went unbeaten through the group stage after opening their account with a 4-2 win over German club Kreis Holzminden.

Successive 2-2 draws against Denmark's Greve FB and Nasets SK of Sweden took them into the knockout stages and a 3-2 victory over Polonia Warsaw (Poland).

But Swedish side Kvarnby IK proved too good for Pro Touch in the last eight, winning 4-1 on their way to the final.
