Manchester City Itinerary

November 27, 2016

Under 9/10   v Manchester City Academy and Under 11/12 v Manchester City Academy

Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th December 2016

 

Itinerary

Wednesday 7th December 2016

  • All players to meet at Sainsbury’s Car Park (Marsh Mills) for 9:30 am as we will be leaving at 10 am prompt
  • All players to come dressed in their IFA track suits & blue training kit for the journey upwards
  • Please bring a SMALL bag as we are only away for 2 days, with a separate rucksack containing both the blue & white playing kits.
  • We will make regular comfort stops on the journey and as we need to arrive at our Manchester base by 4.00 pm, please provide your son with a light packed lunch & drinks for the journey.
  • Upon arrival our support staff will book the boys into the hotel, whilst they attend a 2-hour training session at a local facility before returning to the hotel at approximately 6.30pm. Due to the age of the boys, it will be a maximum of 3 players in each room as they need a good night’s sleep before such an important fixture.
  • We will then eat out together with the coaches at around 7pm before returning to the hotel.
  • With such a prestigious fixture the following day, there will be a strict “lights out” time of 900pm. We would be grateful if you would stress the importance of a good night’s sleep to your son as any player found to be up later than this is not preparing correctly for the game and it would affect their performance, the following day.

 

Thursday 8th December 2016

 

  • We will meet for breakfast at 9.00 with all players needing to be finished by 10.00 at the latest.
  • We shall vacate rooms, and train from 11.00am – 1.00pm
  • In the afternoon, we shall have a relaxing activity before making our way to the Stadium for 5pm
  • After the game we will hold a debriefing session for all players, before embarking on the journey home.
  • We shall look to leave Manchester at 8pm, before embarking on the journey home.
  • We will stop twice on the way home to allow the players to eat and on the final stop at Bristol we will get all players to contact you to advise what time we will be returning to Plymouth.
  • Parents wishing to take the boys off after the game, and make their own arrangements, ie Christmas Shopping etc, is fine with ourselves, we expect the Mini Bus to arrive back in Plymouth in the early hours of Friday Morning.

 

We will confirm the Hotel details over the next few days as we are sure many parents would like to attend this trip.

We are striving to achieve the best possible results for our players and these fixtures form an integral part of this development process.

Over the past 12 months we have introduced some of our players to Bristol City, Southampton, Derby & Fulham and they have all represented the centre very well. Put simply they wouldn’t have had these opportunities if they weren’t part of our set up and we want to help your son be the best he can.
