What we did:

Organisation of an inspection visit to the Algarve in Portugal and pre-season training camp for the first team squad with full on site support.

What they said:

"I would give this 12 out of 10! In all my time as a player and manager this is the best training camp I have been on. The venue itself and overall environment was perfect for the balance of what we needed. We worked hard with 17 sessions on the excellent quality pitch, used the very well equipped gym, luxury pool and private team meeting rooms and importantly also recharged mentally after what has been a non-stop two years for our club. Great organisation by Danny Stones of Full Time Group."

Ian Holloway, Manager

"Once it was agreed that we would undertake a pre-season training camp, I was left with very little time to source a suitable venue and facilities.  We contacted the Full Time Group who were a breath of fresh air.  They arranged an inspection visit for our coaching staff and then all I had to do was book the flights as the Full Time Group did the rest.  The pricing was competitive and the trip was great value, payment terms were easy and communication from Danny Stones and his staff were first class throughout.

As this was our first overseas training camp, to have Danny on site ensured no headaches for me back in the office and allowed our coaching staff to focus their attentions on the job in hand.  He also ensured there were no surprises with 'extras', a problem we had encountered on UK camps.  The manager, coaching staff and players all commented on the fantastic facilities, food and surroundings there were and at times I began to question whether it was as good as they made out so I asked Danny to help me arrange a long weekend on the international break in September so I could check for myself and for once I have to agree the players were right, it was an amazing place with top class facilities.

I would recommend Danny and the Full Time Group to anyone and I am looking forward to working with him in the future."
