In September, we had two squads of players and several parents go on a tour to the UK directly from the National Camp. This is the first time we have done this and it was a huge success. With the boys spending time at the National Camp training together and bonding as a team it helped to make them more competitive in the UK.

Seeing the look on these young players faces as they watched West Ham play Manchester United in front of 76000 people was amazing. Having said that I think the parents enjoyed it even more. The boys played games against West Ham United Academy and Liverpool Academy, had several Academy coaching sessions at different clubs and attended four top class games.

This year we will do a similar tour and will spend time at West Ham playing against the Academy, having a coaching session at the Academy and seeing the West Ham first team play but we will also head up to Scotland for a couple of games against Scottish Club Academy teams.

There are places still available on this tour and if interested contact George Cowie.
