Day 5 - Gibraltar Visit

After an early wake up we boarded the coach for the long journey to Gibraltar, although the lovely scenery and the Gibraltar Rock itself made the journey worth it. Once we arrived the boys played their football fixtures vs. the Gibraltar under 11 national team, Losing on both occasions but creating many chances and defending brilliantly against such strong opposition.

Then we all had lunch at pizza express enjoying endless amounts of pizza and even some ice cream for pudding much to the children's delight. Once finished it was turn of the girls who played their first netball fixtures of the tour. Similar to the boys they found themselves facing tough opposition playing girls much older and in most cases taller than them. Both teams tried hard to prevent attacking chances for the opposition but both were defeated, although the A team gave the opposition a tough game, scoring 6 and leading on many occasions. After the long journey home and a quick dinner the children were in bed ready for a fun filled day of golf, paddle tennis and a trip to the theme park. Updates will be added tomorrow. 😃
