Afternoon all,

We are about to start our third day in the sunny North West of England! The skies have been blue and the sun has been shining on us since our arrival. On Saturday we had a nice relaxing trip to Cheadle Hulme school, where we watched a selection of games, including a first XI local derby between Cheadle Hulme School and Manchester Grammar School, an U14 game and an U12 match. It was a fantastic opportunity to watch some competitive 11-a side youth football, played at a good standard. Due to Cheadle Hulme’s generosity, we then had some time to ourselves to use their fantastic facilities and shake off the jet lag by playing some small sided games between ourselves. A great way to start the trip and to keep us all awake after such a long flight.

Saturday evening we had a lovely meal at the hotel, eating like pro footballers with options of steamed salmon or chicken breast and then headed to the local bowling alley for some team building by knocking down some pins, Mr Hancock took the competition with an impressive 124!

Yesterday was a long but incredible day down in London! After a hearty breakfast, we set off around 10am and headed south to the capital. It was a long but entertaining journey and we got to Wembley stadium around an hour before kick off. It was enough time to soak up the atmosphere, kit ourselves out in the new England away shirt and find our seats before the anthem begun. The game was a competitive and entertaining affair, with England triumphing as 2-0 winners. We managed to avoid a lot of the heavy traffic leaving the stadium and headed back north to Manchester. We stopped off at a lovely countryside restaurant to have dinner and then headed back to the hotel for some much needed rest.

We are now all about to head to breakfast before departing to possibly the most advanced training complex facility in the entire sporting world at Manchester City! We will be training with world class elite coaches, have a behind the scenes tour and maybe even bump into a superstar or two!

Have a great day,
