46 pupils and 6 members of staff departed Crosfields recently for their football and netball tour to Malaga, which turned out to be a tour of a lifetime!
The tour was split into two sections; the boys took part in football training sessions, provided by professional coaches from Malaga FC, and the girls had their very own ex-super league player as their coach for the trip. The children absolutely loved every minute of the sessions, providing them with all the fun, entertainment and technical/tactical advice needed to add both excitement and skills to their respective sports.
As well as the training, there were 6 competitive football and netball fixtures against local opposition, which were evenly matched and thoroughly entertaining for both the spectators and players.
Away from the football and netball, children were able to enjoy the facilities at the resort, including basketball, volleyball and swimming. They also got to experience a day at Tivoli Theme Park, where they enjoyed having their own independence for the day, testing the many rides on offer. The girls had an amazing time on their day trip to Gibraltar, climbing a mountain via cable car and spending some bonus time with the local wild monkeys! The boys travelled into the centre of Malaga and enjoyed a guided tour around the very impressive Malaga FC football stadium, where they had the opportunity to spend their money on gifts for themselves, family and friends.
The tour was an incredible experience for both staff and pupils. Pupil behaviour was exemplary throughout and they were a credit to both their parents and Crosfields.
