A Fantastic Experience

Got up for breakfast at 9.00am ready to leave for the £12million Jamkraft Stadium for 11.00am. Kick off was at 1pm so we left early to make sure everything was in check including no injuries and also to walk through some shape and set pieces.

Trouble In The Pit Lane

There were no games on Monday after the tournament matches. We were all up for breakfast at the usual time then departed for a swimming session at the local baths. We all felt better after a swim and a jacuzzi to get the stiffness out of our legs.

Tournament Kicks Off

On Saturday 25th July we arrived at the hotel in Ostersund and joined up with Hartlepool and Barnsley who were staying in the same hotel. Initially there was some confusion in terms of room allocation. This was soon sorted out and we then went to our allocated rooms.

Team Building & Quiz Foul Play

The team building was an interesting experience. This involved all of the lads being split up into groups of four. Each group was given a recording document that was completed and stamped after each successful activity.

Good Result, Great Start

The match against GIF Sundsvall was not only a good result but also a good experience for the team, myself and also for the coaching staff – the match ended 2-1 to Rotherham United.

Pre-Season Tour Kicks Off

It’s now our 2nd day in Sweden and so far we have trained twice at the Sundsvall Stadium. The stadium’s facilities are excellent and the pitch is a good standard as well. The stadium staff have been very friendly and welcoming to everyone, they provided us with training equipment and have also offered to clean our training kit!
