During half term 46 students participated in the third Wickersley school football tour to Porto.
Students took part in five training sessions with FC Porto academy coaches before playing competitive games against FC Porto development teams. Wickersley won 4 out of the 6 games. Both boys teams won their 1st games 1-0 and 2-0 respectively while the girls secured a clean sweep on in the first round of fixtures winning 3-0 under the lights in the late kick off. The girls secured a second win in two days winning 3-1 in their second fixture while the boys were just edged out in their second games losing narrowly in each. The commitment, endeavour and passion on show in all games was outstanding.
During spare time Pupils attended the Primeira Liga game FC Porto V Famalicio watching Porto win 3-0 to leapfrog Famalicio to go top of the league. The tour also included a behind the scenes stadium tour and lunch in the VIP executive box as well as visits to the award winning FC Porto museum and club shop.
Well done to all involved – A big thank you to pupils and staff for making the Porto tour a memorable one.
