LFE would like to thank all clubs who applied for this year’s Leonardo Pre-Season Tours opportunity, we were extremely pleased with the response we had from Clubs.
In total we received 27 applications for the three available spaces giving our panel of judges a very tough time.
After careful consideration the successful Clubs chosen to take part in this year’s tours are:
- Cheltenham Town
- Derby County
- Oldham Athletic
LFE would like to extend our congratulations to these Clubs and look forward to planning the trips with them.
We also appreciate that this decision will be disappointing to many Clubs, however LFE is continually looking to increase opportunities for Clubs in the future and strengthen our links throughout Europe.
A further application will be made to the Leonardo Programme for funding in 2013-14. Should this be successful we expect to be in a position to provide a similar opportunity in 2013.
LFE has also produced a “Qualities of Successful Applications” for Clubs to view for future reference. This can be accessed at www.lfe.org.uk/progression/tours
Once again we’d like to thank all the Clubs that applied for your continued support of LFE and our initiatives and many congratulations to the winning teams!
