Pupils from Kirkcaldy High School were lucky enough to be given the opportunity to attend the 'Ultimate Player Experience' with Trans World Soccer. Here is an outline of the highlights from the trip:
The group were on their way to St James Park as Newcastle United hosted Liverpool. Lewis McLean said that it was a 'great atmosphere' at the game and it was 'the biggest stadium I've been to by far - it couldn't have got much better!'
A 5-a-side tournament was next for the group. It was a great activity to round off the day as Mr I'anson said that: 'they all seem to be enjoying it and getting involved, having a bit of fun and having a laugh!'
Day 2 and Kirkcaldy were heading off to the 'Theatre of Dreams' to attend an Old Trafford stadium tour. It is the largest UK premiership stadium, with just under 76,000 seats. The fun didn't stop there as the team bus set off towards Villa Park so they could take in Aston Villa vs. Tottenham Hotspur. Ryan McGowan stated that he was: 'looking forward to the game' because 'both teams are doing OK so I hope it's a good game!'
The Kirkcaldy HS squad for the experience was as follows:
Ross Higgins, Ryan McGowan, Owen Robertson, Aaron Cowie, Kieran Grieve, Robbie Pitcaithly, Aidan Tait, Niall Cherrett, Thomas Summers, Ben McDonald, Robert Scott, Euan Sandilands, Ryan Chrystal, Daniel Shand, Robbie McEwan, Rhys Davies, Ewan Hunter, Lewis McLean, Scott McClung, Callum Nicol, Nairn Connelly, Cameron Davies, Kieran Mercer, Ryan Bell, Elliot Hadden, Robbie Henderson, Luke Matthew, Owen Henderson, Ben Menzies, Jordan Donaldson, Aiden Matthew, Mr Gibson, Jack Nicol, Mr Davidson, Mr I'anson, Mr Hamilton
