The Pompey Norseman - Part 6

After a game on Wednesday we drifted into recovery mode and with a fair few of the lads now feeling fatigued we were given a lie-in until 9:30am.

Monday was a double session at the new hotels facilities, which are surprisingly good. They have several pitches and the standard of grass is great.

Our trip to Amsterdam took in a lot of things.

On arrival at the Amsterdam Arena we were given a tour around the stadium and got to look at the state-of-the-art facilities at first-hand. The ground really is different class with high tec features like a retractable roof which also has UV lights so that the grass can still get light if it is closed due to bad weather.

I’m pleased to say that off the pitch we’ve been on really good trip over to the Airborne war museum which was part educational, part enjoyable and something we all learnt a lot from.

The Pompey Norseman - Part 2

We had our first match of the tour today against the Under-19 side of top Eredivisie club FC Twente, so it was a quiet morning. We started the day by going for a walk through the woods to get our legs going after Tuesday’s double session.

The Pompey Norseman

First of all, I would like to introduce myself – my name is Snorre Nilsen from Norway and I’m a second year apprentice at Portsmouth FC. Our youth team was chosen by LFE to fly to Holland for 12 days on a pre-season tour to train, learn and play games as well as experiencing the philosophy of Dutch football.
