 YOUNG Moranbah Futsal player Jamie White is counting down the days until he flies off to Barcelona, Spain, to compete for Australia in an international tournament.

White, 14, was picked by scouts to go to Spain after the national schoolboys championships in Brisbane last year, and is the only player from the Whitsunday region in the team.

He leaves for the championship on May 2, and will spend some time after it touring Spain.

A state representative for the past two years, he is also a keen outdoor football player, competing with the JPL under-14 team in the Mackay competition and was chosen for the Gino Paris tournament last year.

“I'm excited.

I just can't wait for it,” he said yesterday.

“I've been playing Futsal for two years, and this will be my first time overseas.” He comes in to Mackay at least three times a week to play and train.

His mother, Polly, will accompany him on the trip, and is grateful for assistance from the Moranbah community in her fund-raising to get Jamie to Spain.

“I've never had to ask one person to buy a ticket,” she said.
