Take yourself back to your youth, the best day’s of our lives, playing football on the field - jumpers for goalposts, running away shouting your hero’s name as you score as if you have just scored the winner at Wembley “…and Rush finishes in style to make it 2-1…..!!!” then at the weekend for your local junior village team with your school mates – thinking and dreaming about playing for your favourite team, maybe I am that next Ian Rush???, dreaming of scoring the winning goal in the cup final or to win the league, and just imagine playing and representing your country in the European Championships!!
We’ve all been there haven’t we – some still do it now in 5 a side hehe!!!
For most of us this was our dream wasn’t it, for most that dream never came true but it was great to believe it when we dreamt.
For one fantastic talented group of children, this amazing dream is hopefully about to turn into reality….. if they can raise enough funds for what will be the trip of a lifetime!!
In May, Conwy Borough Tigers Under 11’s will be the only representatives from Wales and represent their country in the SV Nevelo U11’s International Tournament near Eindhoven, Holland.
St Nevelo has invited teams from all over the world, and we are so humbled to be the only representatives from Wales and have the chance to compete against teams from Europe including Holland, Belgium, Germany and many more!!!
From the friends, parents to grandparents, everyone in the team are all working tirelessly to fund the trip in a desperate bid to give these amazing youngsters a dream experience with memories which will live with them forever.
To add to the experience and memories, the whole team will be travelling over to Holland on the ‘Official Wrexham Team Coach’ with the team name printed across the front – an premiership player’s lifestyle experience in itself with the help thanks to Pat’s coaches of Wrexham.
In the tournament itself, the Welsh flag will be flying high as the team will be introduced to the crowd to the sound of the Welsh National Anthem and each team has their own music played should when they score. Our song is ‘Tiger feet’!!
There are many different fundraising events taking place, the team are walking up Snowdon soon, bag packing, hopefully planning a wrestling event and many more.
One local company SPATONE from Trevriw caught hold of the story and amazingly instantly pledged £500
We are offering a player sponsorship where for a small donation of £50 companies have their logo printed next to the player and advertised and shared via our designated facebook page for the trip.
We also have an opportunity for a company to sponsor the match shirts which will also be worn for the next two seasons with their logo on it!!
From companies to individuals, if you can help us, we would love to hear from you and most grateful!!
This really is massive for not only Conwy but North Wales and who knows, maybe we can follow last year’s success from the National Team in the Euros and hopefully go one stage further and bring back the trophy!!
Please folks, ….help us give these boys that dream that we all woke up from far too early and never quite got to live!!!
Thank you for listening to our story!!
From all of the Conwy Borough Tigers U11s team!!!
