Stoke City FC logoMark Hughes, Manager of Stoke City FC
'The training camp has been excellent.  First and foremost, we were able to get some good quality work into the guys. The facilities were excellent and we had a very good surface to work on, which is always important when you come to these sort of places.'

 Eddie Harrison, Club Secretary of Stoke City FC
'Our sincere thanks to you and all the staff at the resort for making our training camp such a pleasant experience. Everyone I have spoken to has commented on the qualities of the training and hotel facilities which, combined with the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff resulted in a first class experience and one which our Manager (Mark Hughes) hopes to repeat next year.  

I should also add our thanks to you personally Danny for completing all the arrangements and delivering the training camp you had promised.'

West Ham United FC Neil McDonald, Assistant Manager of West Ham United FC
'It was a very successful week.  We've had good sessions on and off the pitch and everyone's got to know each other which is great...we've left behind a fantastic venue to go for pre-season.  The pitches, facilities and everything about the place has been fantastic.

...thanks for all your help Danny, it makes the trip so smooth and enjoyable.' 

Andrew Pincher, Club Secretary of West Ham United FC
'Having explained our requirements, Danny was able to provide an excellent solution with the recommendation of the resort.  Due to the relationship he has personally developed with the resort, we were quickly able to organise an inspection visit and conclude arrangements as a result of a good responsive working arrangement.' 

Thereafter, Danny was in regular contact prior to departure to establish and maintain open communication and was able to effectively liaise with the resort on our behalf to ensure they were able to adapt to the inevitable changes and additional requirements that occur at that stage during pre-season.

His presence and assistance throughout the training camp ensured everything was to the satisfaction of the Players and Staff and communication continued after their return to complete an overall delivery of a very high standard.'

'The hotel is fantastic, the weather is good, we have unbelievable facilities to work in but the most important thing is that the players work hard...and it's a good change from the training ground.  It's important for us to spend the week together, training and playing the three games.'

Karen Nelson, Club Secretary of Middlesbrough FC 
'As always Danny, your service was extremely professional and your willingness to go the extra mile was greatly appreciated by everyone. 

The team have thoroughly enjoyed their tour and everything ran very smoothly.  Hope to deal with you again for next season's arrangements.'

'It's all about the quality over here - quality of the hotel, quality of the food, quality of the pitches, everything.  The camp was built just before the 2006 World Cup and Portugal were based here for the whole tournament.  Everything about it is first class...and it's the ideal place for us to be based for the next stage of our preparations.

...Danny Stones at the Full Time Group and all the staff have looked after us very well.  It's a great facility and we have been able to have a very intense but enjoyable training camp.'

'It was a fantastic trip.  It served the purposes and one of the main things was about getting the lads to know each other better...Pre-Season has gone really well.'

Chris Turner, Chief Executive of Chesterfield FC 
'Last year we had a one off with a trip to Portugal.  It turned out to be one of the best things we did when the new staff and players got together and bonded immediately which set the parameters for the season.

We are doing the same again this year...It got us off to a flying start last year, set us up very well and we hope it will get us off to another good start this year.'
