A large group of staff and students were given the opportunity to spend almost a week based in Sesimbra in the south of the country, as part of an educational trip and training camp packed with activities.

This included playing in several competitive games for both male and female students, as well as taking part in training, team building exercises and sight-seeing.

Other activities in a packed schedule for the group included a training session at Benfica’s training ground being coached by Benfica coaches and tour of the training ground, beach soccer experience, Benfica museum and shop tour, a Footlab experience at the world's first Indoor Football Performance and Training Park, and a Lisbon sightseeing tour, to give the students a truly memorable trip.

In addition, Myerscough played three fixtures against local Portuguese sides Seixal Club 1925 (boys), AD Bobadelense (boys) and ADF Oerias (girls).

Dave McCann, Senior Lecturer in Sport at Myerscough College & University Centre, said: ‘’The overall purpose of the trip was to provide our students with an excellent opportunity to experience a variety of sporting activities, sightseeing and cultural visits whilst creating lifetime experiences that they’ll never forget, in addition to playing competitive fixtures against local sides.’’

Myerscough College’s football study programmes continue to be the number one choice for students, with a sector-leading reputation in delivering excellent results for students wishing to progress in a number of areas of the game, including playing, coaching, sports fitness teaching or performance analysis.

Places are still available for September 2024 entry.
