St Andrews Diary: Day One

A day dominated by travelling sees both the Under-18s and Under-23s players and staff make the six hour journey from Filton to St Andrews.

A very early start for the Under-23s, having to meet at SGS College at 2:30am! Then its an hour coach journey over to Cardiff International Airport to catch the flight up to Edinburgh. St Andrews University is only an hours coach journey from Edinburgh, with the travelling party arriving at 9:30am. 

After minimal sleep and a morning of travelling, it’s time to grab some food. However, there’s no rest for the wicked as they say with Luke Williams and Alex Ball getting their team out on the training pitches for an afternoon session.

With tomorrows fixture against Dundee FC in mind, Luke and Alex take the time to go over there match preparation for the game. 

Meanwhile, the Under-18s are tucked up in bed all morning! With a later flight at 8:45pm to catch, they have the morning off. After a afternoon session at SGS College, it’s straight off to the airport for Trevor Challis and his team. 

Once they arrive, they take a quick tour around, showing the players the facilities and more importantly where breakfast will be in the morning! 

After a day of travelling for both teams it’s an early night, resting and recuperating ahead of the first fixture of the tour tomorrow.
