Real Valladolid 'fishing' in 'La Fábrica'

It incorporates Adrián Casillas, goalkeeper of 2003, who will change the youthful merengue for the blanquivioleta.


Immersed in full summer planning, Real Valladolid continues to add young talent to its lower categories. One of the latest signings that he has managed to materialize has an illustrious surname and comes from the Real Madrid quarry. This is Adrián Casillas, a goalkeeper who comes from 'La Fábrica' and who will be a member of the Junior Honor Division this season, which, predictably, will start next week under the command of Borja Fernández.

The Leganés goalkeeper, born in 2003, and therefore a junior last year, played last year in Juvenil B merengue and has been announced this week as a drop by the Concha Espina entity. Formed in Valdebebas since 2013, when he arrived at Alevín B, he burned stages in the lower categories of Madrid, even exercising on occasion with the first team before the start of the pandemic.

Despite sharing a surname with the Madrid legend, it has nothing to do with Iker. Not surprisingly, his sporting name is his first name, Adrián, or at least he has been known by until now. His characteristics are those of a modern goalkeeper, agile and with reflexes, fast in one on one and with good ball handling with his feet, a trait that Real Valladolid has also cared for for several years in its lower categories.More outside talent

After 16 players have finished their youth stage, the Pucela youth team coordination has sought to complement the 2003 and 2004 generations with players recruited from other teams such as Adrián Casillas himself. This is the case, for example, of Eugene Frimpong, a midfielder who comes from the African Talent Football Academy, and who, after the delay caused by the coronavirus, will finally call Los Anexos.

Left-handed, like the U-20 international for Ghana, is Migue Sánchez, a midfielder who will join the Division of Honor transferred from Pozoblanco, the Andalusian team with which he settled in the second half of last season in Third. Like him, Álvaro Vázquez will arrive from the south, an attacker who made his debut with Recreativo de Huelva in the extinct Second Division B and who has just scored 14 goals in the highest youth category.

Surely they will not be the last signings, because, among others, Real Valladolid is trying to undertake the return of Hugo Guzón, one of the best footballers born in the province in 2005, and who left in 2018 for Atlético de Madrid. This next course will be for him the first in youth age, something that has not been an obstacle for the Blanquivioleta entity to try to recover it by offering him an important project for the future, like that of other talents such as Chuky.
