Wolverhampton Wanderers Under 18’s have made the trip from Birmingham Airport to the Netherlands for their LFE preseason trip.
The schedule got competitive very quickly, with a hotly contested training match with Rochdale Under 18’s on the morning of the second day, ending in a 5-3 win for the lads from the West Midlands.
The team appear to have adapted to the new conditions with comfort, as defender Connor Johnson explained in his blog for LFE: “We arrived at the De Ruwenberg hotel and it really lived up to the standards we were expecting. It is fantastic and we have all had a warm welcome from the staff.”
