Holland Football tour - February 2024


From 10 to 14 February we took our Year 9, Year 10 and u16 girls teams to Holland. The students had a fantastic experience playing three local teams, a trip to Duinrell theme park, an evening bowling and a morning at Dutch giants Feyenoord for an academy session and a tour of De Kuip. 

Day 1 - We took our teams to play grassroots side DCV, with the Year 9 boys winning 7-0, the Year 10 Boys winning 5-0 and the U16 girls winning 5-0. During the evening, we took the teams into the city to play bowling as some down time. 


Day 2 - An early start making our way to Duinrell Theme park where the students enjoyed time exploring each of the rides and attractions. We were lucky that the park was quiet so pupils had only small waiting times to get onto the rides. The Year 10 boys along with Mr Taylor, Mr Barclay and Mr Frizzell took part in a huge bumper cars free for all, although some teaming up did take place!! During the evening we made our way to local club RVVH who provided the toughest opposition of the tour with three very good teams being matched up against the CPS sides. Our Year 9 boys drew 1-1, Year 10 boys lost 4-1 and U16 girls lost 4-3. The club created a loud atmosphere for the teams with a full stand watching the stadium pitch games.

Day 3 - We spent the morning at Dutch champions Feyenoord. The first part was the academy session, spending an hour and a half on the pitches with lead coach and former Feyenoord captain Ben Wijnstekers who took the group through three practices looking at technical skill, passing patterns and finishing. We then made the short transfer to the stadium for a tour of the ground with a guide who decribed the great history of the club. During the evening we took on local club DHC with the Year 9 Boys winning 7-0, the Year 10 boys winning 4-0 and the U16 girls losing 4-1. 

Thank you to all the students who came on the trip and were a great credit to the school.  We look forward to making this tour happen again in two years time.
