Four teams from Groen Wit 62 Football Club in Apeldoorn Holland made the bi-annual trip to Morden in May.
During this visit the committee treated our Dutch friends to a tour around Wembley Stadium. This has been their request for a number of years so it was very pleasing to finally organise it for them.
The tournament itself was a great success, with the Dutch D1 running out winners of our senior section and congratulations go to Essex Eagles of the junior section and the girls’ representative team who both lifted the trophies in their respective sections keeping the trophies in Morden.
Response from Parents received after the Dutch visit:
It was the first time hosting, it probably won’t be our last; a very enjoyable experience. It was lovely having the girls to stay. We just hope the girls enjoyed it as much as we did.
Without host families this Dutch exchange trip would not be able to happen, so if you are interested in being a host family for the Dutch visit in May 2017 and would like to get involved please enquire at the help desk or contact George Mellor International coordinator on 07971 52949 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Shaun Connolly League Secretary
