Two weeks ago 34 children from last seasons under 11's Vipers, Cobras, Hawks and Eagles along with their parents spent the weekend at St George's park the National Football Centre..
The timing was perfect with the World Cup in progress we all took part in a tour of the facilities including the changing rooms, gyms, indoor and outdoor pitches that the England senior team used prior to flying out to Russia.
After the tour the boys and girls experienced a 2 hour training session using the indoor training facility and led by FA Coaches.
The weekend coincided with the quarter finals of the World Cup so when we returned to the onsite hotel we settled down to watch France v Argentina in the bar!
Sunday saw us venture out to a local team Barton Rovers Vikings who were great hosts in a picturesque location we fielded two teams to play their U11 and U12 teams in very warm conditions.
This rounded of a great weekend and experience for our players who represent Binfield FC Brilliantly and are a credit to our club.
Would recommend the Football experience to the other age groups as its a brilliant life experience for the youngsters.
