Ackworth School took 42 students to Milan on a Football Tour with Inspiresport and Inter Milan. The students took part in 4 training sessions at Inter Milan’s Youth Development Centre delivered by the academy coaches. U12, U14 & U16 all played a fixture against local opposition and all teams showed excellent sporting behaviour and conduct in their respective fixtures. The students were given a tour of the iconic San Siro Stadium where players were able to sit in the dressing room used by some of the most well-known footballers, past and present. A tour of Milan; visiting the impressive Duomo di Milano along with visiting the Inter Milan trophy cabinet were also a highlight of the tour. The students behaviour throughout the trip was outstanding. I would like to thank all players, parents and staff for their support with the trip.

Milan was a very enjoyable trip, with every day filled with activities. We had four action packed training sessions which i think everyone benefited from. We visited the city of Milan and there was loads of architectural buildings with lovely views. There was many laughs along the way as well as some songs. We had a stadium tour of the San Siro its was massive and very colourful. We played some very thrilling games and watched some too, these were very entertaining. Overall the trip was wonderful!

On Friday the 24th of March 2023 me and 41 others went on a tour to Milan Italy to be trained by Milan coaches and more. Personally i think that this trip was the best trip i have been on by far because of everything we did and the people we did it with, my my favourite bit of the trip was training with a Milan coach and spending time with my friends during the whole thing. Overall i think it was a great trip and if another one came up i would definitely go on it.
