On Saturday, 19th December, a group of thirty-two 1st and 2nd year students set off for the annual Old Trafford Trip. The result was a 2-1 win for Norwich City. While the result wasn't what was hoped for, the group made the most of their time in and around the ground after the game. They had an overnight stay in Leigh Sports Village before travelling to Walsall v Port Vale. As the group disembarked the bus at the League One Bescot Stadium, police questioned Mr. Havlin as to whether or not the tour was sponsored by Hollister. The group took time out of their trip to pose for a photo with former Blackpool manager and Sky Sports pundit, Ian Holloway before entering the ground. The result was a 2-0 win for the home team. The group then visited Cheshire Oaks Outlet for a bit of shopping before heading home. A big thank you to Mr. O'Kane, Mr. John Collins, Mr. Niall Havlin and Ms. Anita Doherty for making the tour possible.
(Ed. Well, that's another year without fitting in the long-promised Leeds match. They won, of course! But let's be honest, at the end of the day, the Man U and Walsall games threw up a couple of nice results. And we have to remember that it's all about the kids, who thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. The banter was good. "The funniest thing ever" happened at least six or seven times a day. But the burning question remains unanswered - "Who's Travis?"...That was the Man Utd Trip 2015. Might be nice to see a European game at Old Trafford next year. What you reckon, Mr. Humphries? I know Thursday night probably doesn't suit everyone...)
