The Boys' PDC and Girls EPDC/PDC tour of Bournemouth and the South Coast as-it-happens...

Norwich on tour! Our Boys Football Development Programme PDC U9-12 and Girls Football Development Programme PDC/EPDC U10-16s are on tour from Monday 27th May to Wednesday 29th May.

Keep up-to-date with all the latest on their three day tour of Bournemouth and the South Coast with our very own dedicated feed below…

Day Three

4:51pm TRAVEL UPDATE: Because of heavy traffic, the girls’ ETA is now 7.30pm-7.45pm.  The boys’ ETA is also revised to 8.30pm-9.00pm.

2:11pm …the boys are now en-route to The Nest, too. Current ETA of 7.45pm.

1:08pThe girls have set off! Their current ETA is 6.30pm at The Nest – we’ll update here if this changes.

12:47pEnjoyable fixtures against AFC Bournemouth for the girls.  There’s time for some group photos, before the tourists get back on the coach for home.

9:56aJust a reminder that pick up tonight is from The Nest, and not Carrow Road. We’ll keep you updated on this page once we get an up-to-date ETA.

9:51aThe girls have arrived at the Specsavers County Ground (home of Hamworthy United FC), where they’ll be facing AFC Bournemouth.

The U12s are up first – the older girls have taken up residence in the away end to cheer them on.

Day Two

9:35pm What an awesome evening it’s been – the girls have had beach sports and quiz night, the boys got stuck into laser tag, and everyone enjoyed the Vitality Stadium tour.

2.13pm The boys and girls got together for group photographs with their south coast opponents following the fixtures.

Here’s the boys with Bournemouth:



…and the girls with Portsmouth


12.46pm Kick-off time for the girls!

10.02am The teams are back on the coaches, and on their way to the respective destinations. The girls will be taking on Pompey, while the boys face AFC Bournemouth.

Here are the Boys U10s and U12s.

8.32am A sea of yellow and green in the breakfast room, as both the boys and girls fuel up for the busy day ahead.

Day One

7.39pm Dinner.  With LaserQuest for dessert. Not a bad start to the tour for the girls.

The boys, meanwhile, are just pulling into the hotel. Given the heaps of energy expended on the football pitch earlier, an early night is in store – they’ll be sampling the delights of LaserQuest tomorrow.

5.05pm The girls’ coaches are the first to arrive at the hotel, basecamp for the next couple of nights.

12.13pm Following a training session (and a quick game of pool) the girls get underway. Next stop: Bournemouth! 🚌
