Nelson Youth Soccer player Callum Cutler is doing his best to raise funds to help with travel costs to Madrid, Spain as part of the Generation Adidas program to have players train with elite clubs in Europe.

Cutler, who plays the center-midfield position, has played on numerous teams this past season, including the Nelson Selects U17 Rep team, Whitecaps Academy Regional Team, LVR Bombers Boys Soccer Team, BC Summer Games Regional Team as well as both indoor and outdoor with the Hume Innkeepers Men’s squad, is one of two nominations from NYS.

Lila Carmichael is off to Lyon, France to train with the Olympique Lyonnais.

Cutler is raising funds to train with Real Madrid Foundation.

To help with costs, Ryan Popoff, owner of Popov Leather in Nelson, recently made a donation to help with travel costs for Cutler.

Cutler would also like to acknowledge other sponsors, including the Nelson and District Credit Union and Hume Innkeepers Men’s Soccer Club.

To help with the more than $2400 in travel expenses — food, lodging and training are part of the program — Cutler is soliciting sponsorship in the form of prepaid Save-on-More gift cards or cash donations.
