Caldicott Football Tour to Eindhoven 2020

10 February 2020

 

Over the first January exeat, 15 Year 8 boys travelled to Eindhoven for an inaugural U13A Football Tour.

The boys took part in two high quality training sessions with PSV Eindhoven’s academy coaches at the club’s first team training ground. The boys learnt the importance of developing technical skills and confidence on the ball. In addition, they had two hard fought and entertaining fixtures versus local club teams. In the first match, the boys came back from 3 - 1 down to win 4 - 3 against Dutch team Marvilde. Whilst, the second game was played in beautiful sunshine with a cracking atmosphere at Lutlommel SV in Belgium. The boys revelled in the experience of playing on a full-sized pitch and ran out 4 - 2 winners.

All the boys and staff included had a great trip. They maximised the opportunity to take part in a range of activities that were available in the hotel, which included ten pin bowling, a golf simulator, Futsal, table tennis and swimming. The trip was capped off with a visit to watch PSV Eindhoven in action at the Philips Stadion, combined with a stadium tour.

Many thanks to the parents who came along to the support the tour, it certainly made for a great atmosphere and spurred the boys on to victory.
