Lads needed a break from the harsh weather and Dunas Douradas in the Algarve gave us a beautiful place to do that, great trip, thanks

The last 3 trips have been excellent with Gary, to play Premier League teams such as Spurs and then Paris St Germain have give the whole club a boost and the players have responded to it, unbelievable organisation, top class!

We could have had a difficult week with the wet weather but the importance of having Gary here insured we trained on a good surface everyday, we were very well looked after and even the tea was hot! I hope to do it again as it was ideal preparation for our Euro 2012 qualifiers!

Hotel Riu Rincon, and Bus transfers

We all had a brilliant weekend, despite getting walloped in the rugby. The hotel was very nice and the transfers were all on time etc. Everyone we spoke to seemed to agree that it was a big success and thus will hopefully be repeated next year.
