Adam Lawrence who organised this trip for the boys explained that playing against South American teams will give them all invaluable experience. I will also give them ideas on how to cope with players that have been taught and trained in different ways.
Good luck from all at Valley Gold and again I must say it is a great use of your funds to produce the Charlton stars of the future.
