93 of our pupils recently enjoyed an incredible trip to Benfica FC in Lisbon accompanied by our fantastic PE department.

76 boys and 17 girls from Years 8, 9 and 10 had the great experience of four training sessions with academy coaches within the Benfica training complex. The pupils also played against a local club, Seixal FC with three out of five Northfield squads winning their games. Onlookers even enjoyed some entertaining games from the Year 8 mighty ducks.

Pupils also enjoyed some sightseeing and even watched Sporting Lisbon v FC Famalicao, another fantastic experience for the pupils. 

Thank you to Inspiresport for organising the trip, who once again delivered a very memorable experience; This is the sixth football trip organised by Mr Alderson, and it certainly was one of the best.

Well done to all pupils and staff!
