On their football tour to Holland the players from Halas Hawks FC U14’s were based in one of our popular holiday parks in the South of Holland. The park was an ideal base for the group with a range of amenities for players and adults alike. The group were to stay in Holland for 3 nights and enjoy 2 football matches against local Dutch clubs.
The group from the West Midlands were collected by coach form their designated pick up point and transferred to Dover for their short sailing to Calais. Upon arrival in France, they continued their onward journey to the South of Holland. Upon arrival and after settling into their bungalow style accommodation, the players, coaches and supporters had time to explore their surroundings before enjoying a good night’s sleep in preparation for the tour to follow!
The following morning the group played their first fixture in testing weather conditionsand in a brilliant match the tourists came out on top. Once the group had enjoyed the company of their hosts they returned to their accommodation to celebrate their victory.
There second fixture was again a very entertaining game, played in good spirit in front of the travelling teams loyal supporters, with the result going in Halas Hawks favour again by 3 goals to 2. The group then returned to their accommodation to enjoy the final night of their tour.
Having checked out of their accommodation on the final morning the journey home included various stops in both Belgium and the CitiEurope near Calais in France to take advantage of the favourable prices before boarding the ferry for their return crossing to continue their onward journey to Halesowen. The team manager Tony Cox and tour organiser Sharon Simpson commended the players on their behaviour throughout the tour both on and off the sporting field, a sentiment endorsed by Burleigh Travel.
