Bolton School Football Squads Unbeaten in Portugal
Senior Boys Sport

Bolton School’s U13 and U14 football squads travelled to Lisbon over the Easter break. Across the six-day tour, 39 pupils were involved in training, recovery, gym and fitness sessions in between testing themselves in fixtures against some of Lisbon's top football clubs including Belenenses and SRD Negrais.

All Bolton sides remained unbeaten during the week, winning an impressive six out of six matches. There was also chance to tour the professional surroundings of SL Benfica and to watch FC Porto in live Primeira Liga action at Estoril Praia.

The tour was not entirely football related and there was plenty of time to soak up the local Portuguese culture with tours of historic Lisbon and local towns such as Cascais. There were also lots of activities for the boys to enjoy, including beach football, table tennis and bowling.

The tour was sponsored by electricals retailer, AO, who provided funding for the touring team’s playing and training kits, as well as grants to enable bursary pupils to enjoy the tour, too.
