The 2016 International Football Tournament in Gyeongju City Korea was a fantastic experience and i was very honoured to be selected as captain.
The coaching staff were great fun and really looked after us.
All the games we played in were professionally run and the great spirit in which all the teams played and socialised together was amazing to be a part of.
We all made some new friends, had lots of laughs, enjoyed every minute and its definitely a time i will cherish and never forget.
I highly recommend to anyone who has the opportunity to go and be part of this tour , to do so, as it's a once in a lifetime experience.
