Colts sunshine tour

1 week ago By Derick Thomas

The Fleetwood rugby club under 17 side have set-off for sunnier climes with their end of season tour to the Spanish mainland.

The junior colts set-off last Sunday from Liverpool airport and headed to the Barcelona area for a five day stay.

Team coach and tour organiser Jon Amor says a great deal of planning and fundraising has made the international break possible.

“The actual trip has been four years in planning and two years of fundraising by the players and parents which has brought in a remarkable £20,000. We have 38 players and parents travelling and it’s the first time abroad for some of the party.

“Over the five days we have two games, a tour of the Noucamp Stadium, a trip to the Adventureland water park and a couple of days on the beach,” added Jon.

Winger Adam Robinson, 16, is looking forward to a fun-filled adventure but also recognises the important team building element.

“We are all really looking forward to the trip and it will be a good laugh being with everyone.

“Team spirit is important as it brings us more together in time for next season, It’s a big season coming up as senior colts. It’s our final year together and some lads will be looking to impress first team coach Steve Woodburn and hopefully make the step-up to the first XV.”

Meanwhile, the European theme continues this Friday when the under 15 boys team embark to Holland and a four-day tour around the Amsterdam area.
