Exiles U19 trip to Portugal 2021
Idag, 15:02 0 kommentarer
Dear All, We had a great time last time we went to Portugal and it would be a terrific event for us all to have our final matches as a P18/19. The cost for the Portugal trip 2021 will be 4,500 SEK per player. This is based on sponsorship from Assesio and the senior Mabon’s (a big thank you to both). As some players will be joining from abroad we have extended the trip from Thursday the 8th April to Sunday the 11th 2021. This will give us a chance to train together on the Friday. As requested (by a few players) we have upgraded the accommodation from a hostel to 4 star hotel with swimming pool. The matches will be 30 mins long and we will probably play 3x on Saturday and then 2x on Sunday, subject to confirmation. PRICES INCLUDE:
- Flights with TAP to and from Libson
- Meet & Greet at Lisbon Intl Airport;
- Return Airport Transfers;
- 3 x Nights’ Accommodation in a 4 star Hotel;
- Half-Board Basis (Breakfast and Dinner);
- Tournament Registration: Participation Kit with Official T-Shirt and Lunches for Saturday and Sunday included; | Transfer during the event (Hotel-Festival & Return);
- Move Sports Liaison Officer for duration of stay.
We have 10 players signed up and 5-10 said they are interested. We will also invite some players from EKF but we need a minimum squad of 20 players, ideally 22-24. Everyone that wants to come needs to pay a deposit of 2,000 SEK, using your first name as reference to the Portugal bank account number SEB 5203 01 133 60. This needs to be paid by 31st October 2020. If the trip is cancelled due to Covid or lack of players the deposit will be returned. We will expect all those coming to train over the winter and will target a few warm up matches before we depart. Any questions contact Mike or Håkan, Look forward to hearing from you all, All the best

Generally much improved effort from everyone. Good support, defence and chase, so well done everyone.
The only frustrating part is the last minute when we gave the ball to EKF to score when we had a 3 on 1 overlap and would've scored our easiest try!
But good positive performance from everyone.
See you ALL at training tomorrow.
PS - Don't forget to sign up for Portugal
Match, Training and Portugal

Well done P18! Good win today but a lot to work on. EKF were not at full strength but we were missing a few players and a number of you were playing out of position. I was very impressed with how you all handled the 10's game (which is not our favourite form) and as always you hung in there and scored some nice team tries.
Much room for improvement so please come to training (Tuesdays 18:30, Thursdays 18:00 and Saturday's at 11:00).
We have another match vs EKF on the 11th November and then the plan is to train for Portugal, as a P19.
I will send out a notice shortly for Portugal so please sign up. We will have sponsorship (more details later) so the sum for Exiles will be around SEK4,500 per player (including flights, accommodation and 2x meals per day). Once we have an indication of numbers we will need a deposit from each player.
Look forward to seeing you all at training,
Match this Saturday - meet 1:30pm

Good training session tonight, great to see so many of you. I was impressed there were hardly any dropped balls despite the lack of daylight!
I am hoping we will have a few more players on Saturday so we can make a full 15 but we need to have a full team run before we play.
With this in mind can you all meet in Taby at 1:30pm rather than 2:00pm. We need to run through the plays with everyone so the time before the match is essential.
Look forward to seeing you all at 1:30pm
