Team bonding trip to Cumbria

CHAD.co.uk, 06 July 2009
STAGS are off to Cumbria this week for a two day team bonding trip - thanks to the Stags' Supporters' Association.


Supporters offered to fund the trip which will see David Holdsworth and his men tackle three tough outdoor assignments.

"I am sure the boys will enjoy it," said Holdsworth. "It will be hard work - this is not a jolly-up. It is there to help them focus. It will be tough but they will do it with a smile on their faces."

One task is gorge felling which will see players leaping into ice cold water.

"It is a fabulous, exhilarating thing to do, though when the icy cold water hits their backsides they will know about it," said Holdsworth.

"Another group will be racing canoes and a third group will work on raft building, designed on team ethic, son we can see who the bright ones are and who could survive on a desert island.

"We will probably split into three groups with defenders/goalkeepers, midfield players and forwards. It will help them know team mates' strengths and weaknesses.

"In the evening we will have a meal together and maybe a game of Scrabble which should be fun."
