Football Fantasy in Catalan
Forty five Northfield students in years 8, 9 and 10 lived the life of a footballer in Catalan during the Easter holiday. The students had 4 quality coaching sessions at Futbol Salou with Catalan Football Federation coaches and also games against local Catalan club teams.
Mr Alderson who organised the visit with Inspiresport said, " Inspiresport recommended Catalan Football Federation because of it's link with FC Barcelona and the excellent facilities at Cambrils Park and Futbol Salou. The trip was a huge success and I was particularly pleased with the excellent Camp Nou stadium and museum tour. The accommodation and training facilities were first class and highly suitable for school and club trips. The students developed their football skills throughout the 5 days and a lot of emphasis was based on technique, possession and decision making. The students were a credit to the school throughout the whole trip receiving positive comments from the public in airports, accommodation complex and the training ground. It was a great experience for all the boys living in a foreign country as they developed good life skills".
Mr Alderson has organised 5 football successful trips abroad with Inspiresport, FC Valencia, FC Villarreal, Ajax, FC Porto and Catalan/FC Barcelona.
"This trip was a huge success as all students had a very enjoyable experience living the life as a footballer in Catalan/FC Barcelona".
