TOUR TO HOLLAND MAY 27TH TO 30TH 2016
Once again we are going to Zeeland in the Netherlands for a weekend of fun and football. The tour is open to all age groups from U8s through to U15s and is a great adventure for the players. Playing football in a different country in different settings and formats broadens their experience of the game whilst enjoying a 'holiday' atmosphere as we stay in a well-catered resort with lots of facilities for both young and old.
The U8s to U10s play 7-a-side on one half of an adult-sized pitch, whilst U11s and older play 11-a-side on an adult-sized pitch. In Holland the junior and youth sides are grouped by calendar years unlike our system which groups sides based on the academic years. In Holland they combine two calendar years together and so we have seen some real mismatches in previous tours. Results have been mixed but everyone enjoys the experience and many have been on all of our previous tours. The cabinet at Sparrows Green holds many trophies from the two tournaments we enter on the Saturday and Sunday.
