Forfar Academy sent a lucky group of pupils and staff to attend one of Trans World Soccer's fantastic 'Ultimate Player Experiences' Here is an outline of the highlights of the experience:
The first day started off with a training session taken by professional coaches at Newcastle United FC. Challenge matches vs local opposition followed with the Forfar guys: 'Showing the teams north of the border what they are made of' according to My Taylor!
Forfar then took part in a pre-match press conference before taking in the Sunderland vs Stoke game at the Stadium of Light. Mr Taylor said that ‘the kids are having a great time – and so are the staff!’
See below for a highlights video from the experience:
The guys were first treated to a stadium tour of Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium as Forfar were given unrestricted access to all areas of the great arena!
The activities didn’t stop there however, as the small matter of Manchester United vs Everton at Old Trafford was still to come, with many of the guys excited about seeing some of their heroes in action!
The Forfar Academy squad for the experience was as follows: Owen Woodcock, Lennon Sturrock, Ben Ranstead, Josh Lumgair, Liam Deas, Ryan Clark, Liam Jones, Andrew Short, Ben Davie, Calum Kelman, Craig Davidson, Ruaridh Beaton, Guthrie Smith, Blaine Hampton, Tyler Burton, Kurtis Turek, Blair Butchart, Robbie Davidson, Robbie McLauchlan, Kai Livingston, Daniel Harrison, Jamie Fordyce, Jack Neave, Liam Devine, Ethan Hampton, Tyler Godfrey, Jack Steven, Fraser Macintosh, Drew Morrison, Sean Tait, Cameron Fleming, Andrew Stirling, Kyle Millar, Max Milne, Lewis Yule, Jay Doherty, Jamie Gill, Ryan Stirton, Connor Patel, Jason King, Mr Harrison, Mr Taylor, Mr Marshall, Mr Young.
