Eibar SD – Celtic, 19.07.2015

Fanny and Küsä were heading off to Eibar (Basque-Country, Spain) for the friendly game on the weekend of july 18th. It was Eibar SD’s 75 birthday. We met there many of our friends from Spain and Martin & Gill from Scotland. A big thankyou to Maureen, who organized nearly everything!


We arrived on Friday and after a speed-bar-crowl (7 or 8 bars in one hour) we finally settle down in a nice bar where we have good talks with old and new friends.

Weather was fantastic, beer cold  (for 5 minutes), and it was a pleasure to take part at the festivities on the main place, where we were letting our flag fly. Rebels and Celtic songs habe been played and we could watch bit of the basque-style of the “Highland-Games”.


The game wasn’t that bad and Celtic comfortably won 4:1. Ambrose and Griffiths (with a hattrick) were the Celtic goal scorers. Bailly saved a penalty aswell. After the game we had a fantastic time in the city center with Celtic supporters and members of the Eibar supporters club which is named “ESKOZIA LA BRAVA” (Scotland the brave). Could not have matched better!


On Sunday, Gonso guided us to different spots at the Basque-coast. We finally ended up in Hondarribia (next to the French boarder / San Sebastian-Airport). Very nice village and the right place to relax, before we were flying back the next day to Basel.


It was another fantastic trip, with many stories to tell! Looking forward to the next trips!
