OPEN TRAINING EXPERIENCE - SUPPORTERS VIEW
Wales supporter Paul Morris provided Vauxhall Football with a glowing testimonial after he and his son enjoyed a fantastic experience at the Wales Open Training session.
On the Tuesday of matchweek, my son Finley and I drove to the Vale Hotel to meet with the Welsh Football Squad. This had been kindly arranged by Vauxhall who were very friendly and professional throughout.
The excitement my son and I felt was second to none as we were taken to the part of the training ground where the players were practicing. We were able to watch the squad running around, passing quick balls to each other and weaving in and around the cones and obstacles set by the coaches.
After about half an hour we were escorted back to the hotel where we had the opportunity to meet the players, shake their hands and obtain autographs and photographs.
My son struggled to believe that he had actually met Gareth Bale and had his photo taken with him. Both Gareth and the rest of the squad were fabulous and very accommodating, making us feel relaxed in their company and answering all of our questions.
It really was a fantastic experience and we felt honoured at being given this opportunity.
I would like to say a big thank you to both Vauxhall and Abi Haywood who organised this event and gave us something to remember for the rest of our lives.
