Ghanaian side Right To Dream Academy are favourites to win 2015 Milk Cup in Northern Ireland

The Right to Dream Academy will travel to Northern Ireland with hopes of winning both the Junior and Premier titles of the 2015 Milk Cup after scooping other silverware in Europe.

Their younger squad showed what they are capable of when they took on the cream of Europe in the Marveld Tournament in the Netherlands, beating Manchester United, PSV Eindhoven, Feyenoord and Ajax before securing victory with a 4-0 win over Premier League giants Arsenal in the final.

The Right to Dream’s representatives in the Premier section have just as strong a pedigree after winning all 14 games on a recent European tour, which included meetings with Benfica and Chelsea.

“To say that Right to Dream are a world class outfit is most definitely an understatement,” said Dale Farm Milk Cup chairman Victor Leonard.

“We are always striving to secure entries of the highest quality across the globe and there is absolutely no doubt Right to Dream are up there with the very best professional clubs anywhere on the planet.”

The Right to Dream Academy has its own purpose-built facility and some of its former players are now with clubs in the top leagues across Europe.

Thomas Agyepong, a former captain of Ghana’s under-17 team, recently signed for Manchester City, while Emmanuel Ntim, Yaw Yeboah and Kingsley Fobi were in Ghana’s 21-man squad who were knocked out in the last 16 of the Under-20 World Cup in New Zealand last week.

The draw for the 2015 Dale Farm Milk Cup will take place in W5 at the Odyssey.

The 33rd tournament begins on Monday, July 27 with the finals night at the Ballymena Showgrounds on Friday, July 31.
