Youth Training Camp: Slovenia / Day One

18th Jul 2011

As the youth team depart for their annual pre-season training camp our young players will keep you up to date with the groups progress through daily diary updates on the trip. 

Today, Charlee Adams and Sam Westley provide the days highlights. 

Day One

After meeting at the training ground we travelled down to London last night to be closer to the airport for this mornings flight to Graz (Austria). 

Once we woke up, we all met for breakfast, before we made our way to the terminal. The flight went well, however there was a slight bit of turblance mid way through. We arrived at Graz with Deqwon delaying us because he couldn't find his passport. SHOCK!

We then drove from the airport across the border to Slovenia by bus. Soon after we arrived at the hotel which has fantastic views! We were welcomed, then shown to our rooms where we would be staying for the next week, they were decent. 

Half an hour later we went straight out for a run, which then led into a short but very sharp training session, this was mainly to get the traveling out of our legs. The training session included a bit of keepball followed by some 6 a side games. By the way Adams & Westley were on the same team and we smashed it!

After the session we came back for our showers followed by a variety of nice foods for dinner. We then got some time to relax in each others rooms before we had a team meeting involving rules for the tour.

Overall it was a very positive start to the tour, but by this time we were all ready for bed, knowing we had another early start in the morning. Cheers! 

Chaz & Sam
