It was just a very short trip to Holland – Friday to Wednesday – but goodness, they packed in a lot of action!
The Downlands footballers together with most of the Downlands PE department, ably supported by Mr Urwin, Mr Ashdown and Mr Odlin travelled to Eindhoven for football packed days.
They trained at the PSV Eindhoven training ground, went to see PSV Eindhoven thrash Emmen 6-0, trained some more, played matches, trained some more, had a stadium tour of Philips Stadion (PSV stands for Philips Sport Verein), trained some more, played some more matches, had a day in a theme park and then all collapsed on the coach home! What a trip!
You have to love your football to go on a Downlands PE football tour – and these students certainly did!
