FCV Academy students revel in St George's Park trip
FCV Academy made the most of their half-term break by taking a trip to St George's Park, the English Football Association's national football centre.
With a break from competitive action, the players travelled to the Burton-upon-Trent base to be put through their paces at the same location where the England squad sharpen up before home fixtures.
Jimmy Gilligan and John Gittings were the course trainers, who fed back that the FCV players were fantastic throughout the day – very receptive to what was asked of them and delivering the goods on the pitch. Gilligan even asked if we could come back for all of their training sessions!
We can't promise that unfortunately, but we are looking forward to returning to St George's Park for further training sessions in the future.
Well done to the players – you did the FCV Academy proud!
