King’s Lynn Community Football’s advanced squads visit West Ham and Chelsea’s grounds during London trip
Forty four players from King's Lynn Community Football's advanced squads visited Upton Park and Stamford Bridge during an enjoyable four-day trip to London.
Five teams, from under-8s to under-12s, faced Aldershot Town's centre of excellence teams before playing advanced squads from Charlton Athletic the following day.
As well as experiencing the life of a professional player, by eating nutritional pre-match meals and enjoying light training sessions, the players also visited West Ham's and Chelsea's stadiums.
They also visited the Blues' museum before receiving more than two hours of coaching by Fulham's Academy staff at their West London training base.
Dan Buhlemann, the scheme's development officer, said: 'The boys made the trip a fantastic experience for everyone and one that was easy to manage because their behaviour was first class.
