South-West U13 Representative Team

ISFA U13 SOUTH WEST SQUAD ENJOY PRE-FESTIVAL RESIDENTIAL

The ISFA South West squad that will represent the region at the forthcoming National Festival were put through their paces at the end of a residential training camp, held at Sherborne School. Training and coaching took place on a very busy first day but in between session the squad were able to meet Ryan Seager, Yeovil Town’s on loan striker from Southampton. Ryan gave a wonderful insight into what may lie ahead for some of the boys in the squad and his authenticity of response capture their attention throughout; it was clear they gained a great deal from the experience.

The ISFA South West squad were planned to play training matches at Sherborne on the second day against Bristol Rovers, Plymouth Argyle and Exeter City academies, again hosted at Sherborne School. However, incredibly inclement weather meant that all 15 pitches at Sherborne were waterlogged. If it wasn’t for the amazing work of Mr Andy Buse at the Buckler’s Mead Sports Centre, who allowed us access to their 3G AstroTurf, the day would have been cancelled.

The matches themselves were very competitive and although no scores were recorded, no one team dominated. The football itself was of an excellent standard and all coaches regarded the day as a great experience. It was a shame that horrendous traffic meant that Exeter City were unfortunately unable to attend.

Since the region covers a huge area, it has proved very challenging to get the boys together to train in the past. The residential camp at Sherborne School was therefore the perfect way to allow the boys to train and work together, prior to their representative matches at Shrewsbury in April. It was a fantastic experience for the squad which was hosted superbly by Sherborne School.
