Midlands Football Tour

The football tour of the Midlands got off to a bad start last Friday when games against Stockport Grammar School were cancelled due to waterlogged pitches. Undeterred, it was straight for a paintballing session on Sat morning then games against Wolverhampton Grammar School followed. These were, as always, very enjoyable competitive games. The U13s played some nice football but lost to physically stronger opposition. The U14s, on the other hand, proved too strong for Wolverhampton and ran out comfortable winners. The U15 team conceded three goals in the first half before coming on strongly in the second half and winning 4-3. A trip to watch a Birmingham City vs Huddersfield Town followed before a few rounds of ten-pin bowling that evening.

Overall it was an enjoyable tour, with all teams playing some decent football in the right spirit.
