On Friday 17 May the 12 S1 School of Football boys headed to Hampden, Scotland’s National Football Stadium, to play in matches with other School of Football squads from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen. As well as playing football the boys also got a tour of the Hampden Park stadium.
“We all had to get up early. Once we got to school we got on our bus, it was really fancy and posh, with leather seats and TVs. We had a very long drive to Glasgow and we stopped at Perth on the way down and the way back.”
“Once we got down to Hampden we ate our lunch and watched the first round of the games. It was then our turn to take part in the games. The games were very good and were a lot of fun but they still had a competitive side to them as well.”
“Once the games finished we went to the stadium for our tour of Hampden Park. The tour was very good and we got to go round all the main rooms and the museum which has the real Scottish cup.”
“It was a really good day overall! “
