Rather than participate in an overseas tournament, Pembroke Athleta Football Nursery opted to organise a training camp in Manchester for their Under-17 side thanks to Team Tours Direct.
The programme included friendly matches against English teams, namely Southport Juniors, Delamere Rangers and Bridge Colts. Pembroke won one game and lost two. The programme included two training sessions, one of which was conducted by Blackburn Rovers Academy coaches.
The Pembroke contingent watched the friendly game at the Reebok Stadium between Bolton and Osasuna and the UEFA Europa League clash between Liverpool and Rabotnicki in Anfield – a great experience for all, including the adults accompanying the players.
A day at Alton Towers Theme Park gave the lads a much needed break from an intensive week while visits to Anfield, Old Trafford and the Reebok Stadium completed this very successful training camp programme.
