Mexico World Cup star Javier Aquino turned up in Castledawson this week at an under 13’s match.

Javier is currenlty a midfield player for Villareal in Spain and was in the Mexico squad who competed in Brazil, making an appearance when coming on as substitute in the match against Holland.

He is also an Olympic Gold medal winner when featuring on the successful Mexico team in London 2012.

This was a great, and rare, opportunity for local people to meet such a high class footballer .

While Javier had been linked with a loan move to Celtic, he is currently training with Birmingham City. His team, Villareal, are in action at Middlesborough this weekend.

However, all rumours are false that the Mexican star was about to put pen to paper for Moyola Park in the season to come!
