The affiliate club will support the SGI Marbella Academy players to represent the club in competitive league fixtures with a seamless pathway into the senior team from the 23/24 season. SGI continue to bridge the gap for young players to access European football and with UD Los Barrios we bring this access closer than ever.

Director of Football Sean Morris said: 'We are excited with another partnership that provides a pathway into high level football in Spain. We have players from over 15 different countries already representing us and by providing this access for the forthcoming season, players will immerse themselves into our programme which feeds into the club. This partnership provides the added advantage of regular league fixtures and players being able to sign for a Senior team in Spain'.
