It was a great pleasure to welcome Sunderland AFC to Marpafut this summer. One of the Premierships largest clubs spent 4 days with us at Marpafut.

Although the club have not been performing as well as expected over the last 6 months, there is no forgetting the job, that their now under fire manager has done, to get them where they are. Despite this, the noticeable feeling was the great team spirit in the camp.

This trip was put together by the HI Group, who financed the stay by organising 2 friendly matches. The first against top La Liga team "Seville" and the second against Spanish Second Division side "Algeciras CF". Although both games ended in defeat for Sunderland, the exercise was to help regain match fitness before the start of the new Premiership season.

Together with 4 days spent relaxing at the spectacular "Alabardero Resort" (22 room luxury hotel), daily training, and some tough matches, it was a very successful camp, and we look forward to welcoming Sunderland back for a mid-season break in February 2003.
