It all started when...

Coach Chris Lock had the idea to take the children away to experience playing football oversea. At first it was going to be somewhere close, easily accessible, Then NO!! He decides lets take the boys to the biggest youth football competition in the world, The Gothia World Youth Cup. So with parents using their hard earned money and with the club receiving donations, it all became a reality. 19 children and 4 coaches travelling to Gothenburg, Sweden, on the 16th July 2017, to take part in something that these children will remember for the rest of their lives. It was an amazing trip, with the boys being together 24 hours a day for 7 days of the week. By the end of the tour they were no longer just a team, they were a family. At the opening ceremony there were 50 thousand people. It was at this point the children realised just what a spectacle they were now a part of. As a Club we would like to thank all the people that donated money to help us make this trip a reality. We would also like to thank World Remit and Dulwich Tandoori for the sponsorship you provided the club which allowed us to kit the boys out with tracksuits, training tops, Kit Bags and Match Kits etc... We could not have made this happen without you. As a Club we were blown away with what this competition offered the children, it was simply amazing, however the most interesting part was not the football part, it was the social part seeing the children play together everyday, seeing them making new friends with children from other countries and cultures, seeing them grow and mature so much in the space of a week after being away with parents. With that said, its now our decision as a club that the Gothia Cup is going to be our yearly end of season tour "So Roll On 2018" Please enjoy the videos and pictures below and feel free to get in contact for more information about the club or the tour.
