Rochester Futbol Club
Have you ever dreamt of experiencing the world? Different cultures? What if you had the opportunity to not only do what you love, but have it take you to another country?
The young men of the Rochester Futbol Club had the opportunity to follow their dream! How was this possible you ask? Through hard work, determination, and a little support from Sutherland Global Services they were able to experience a once in a life time trip to compete with the Irish National Champs in Northern Ireland!
16 players, 2 coaches, and some family members spent 9 days beside Carrickfergus’ famous seaside castle. The players, staff and parents had the opportunity to experience a new culture and visit some of the country’s most famous tourist destinations including the North Coast, Giants Causeway, Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge, Belfast, and the Titanic Quarter.
What’s a trip without Futbol? The u14 National team lives, eats, and breathes Futbol! The team currently practices three times a week with a full time national staff at various training centers across the country. The trip gave them the chance to practice in top notch facilities and play against other great teams including Green Island FC U14s, Cliftonville FC U15s, Crusaders FC U15s, Dungannon United U15s, and Northern Ireland U14 National Team. They also were able to show off their skills in front of English and Scottish professional club scouts as well as Northern Ireland’s coaching staff.
The experience alone united the team as a whole and gave them the experience of traveling, lodging, practicing, and playing games together in a foreign environment against other hard working teams. They learned new skills, styles, and strategies which made them better athletes and better teammates.
We at Southerland Global Services are thrilled that we had the chance to sponsor this amazing opportunity for the RFC’s BU14s. Sutherland Global Services believes in hard work and dedication. We see the importance of teamwork. Giving the RFC BU14s the opportunity to follow their dream was truly an amazing feeling.
