Wow, what a first day on tour. An early start saw the students set off for Luton Airport to take a flight to Porto for their first day of a 5 day football tour. Once safely landed we were greeted by John our rep and a heavy rain storm, which meant instead of going into the city centre we went to a nearby shopping centre to grab some lunch. We then arrived at our hotel where students were allocated their rooms before heading off to their first training session that was held at FC Nuvez. The students were introduced to their coaches before an intense 90 minute training session working on reaction time and recovery. The group then headed back to the hotel for dinner before departing to go and watch Boavista v Estoril in which Boavista won 2-1. The group then returned to the hotel for a well deserved sleep ready for Day 2.
