Scholars Head To Spain
Sheffield FC's Maltby Academy Scholarship will be heading out to sunny climes in March, as they set off for a Spring Residential Tour to Pinitar, Murcia in Spain, where they will aim to develop even further as a group of players.
The tour - organised by GB Sports Tours, a North-East based Company Specialising in Overseas Sports Tours - aims to provide our Scholars with an opportunity to play abroad. It will be a great learning experience and an important tool in their development, giving them an understanding of the requirements needed to play football in a different style and culture.
The squad comprising of 22 players will benefit from the coaching experience of Sheffield FC's First Team Assistant Manager, Russ Eagle, who will be making the trip along with Maltby Academy members Matt Higgins and Principal Chris Eccles, and will play three Friendly Fixtures versus local opposition at Pinatar Arena Football Center.
In addition to the fixtures the Scholars will have Training Sessions at Pinatar Arena Football Center, as well as full access to Fitness Centre and Spa Facilities at Pinatar Arena Football Center, hopefully completing a memorable character building experience for our future stars.
The tour starts on 9th March, until 12th March 2019.
