The May half-term saw Brandon Town Youth FC’s third annual trip to Holland.
Months of planning culminated in the club taking over 50 of the club’s children to Holland for four days, just over the Belgian border at De Vosermeren and travelling into Holland to play against one of the country’s best development football clubs – Unitas.
As well as two fantastic games of football at Unitas for each of the four teams taken, a guided tour of PSV Eindhoven’s awe-inspiring stadium was also included
At the end of the tour, the results were tied – with four games each to Brandon and Unitas.
A huge thank you goes to all of those responsible for organising this fantastic trip as well to each and every one of those who went.
n The club also held its presentation day recently. Every player in every age group was presented with a trophy by their manager to thank them for their hard work and efforts throughout the season.
