Mark Hughes and Danny StonesStoke City FC trainingStoke City FC training camp

 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 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.'

Andrew Dent, Club Doctor of Stoke City FC
'Thank you Danny especially for the extra help you provided in terms of the various medical matters that inevitably arise during a pre-season camp. This was very much appreciated by Management colleagues and I, including our Head Physio, Dave Watson.

Your local knowledge and assistance were very useful for the existing Squad and also in arranging specialised appointments for potential new signings.'

'Our training camp was extremely well planned through Danny and his team at Full Time Group with constant communication to fulfil our needs and requirements. The hotel and facilities were 1st class and the help from staff throughout the trip to make things run smoothly was very impressive.

The training pitches were as good as anything we work on at our own club and to have the facilities on-site is a huge advantage. We really enjoyed our stay and would look to come back soon.'

Kathryn Dickman, Development Squad Secretary of Sunderland AFC Academy
'FTG listened very carefully to the specific requirements we had for our U21 Squad and from there, they provided an excellent location for our camp. Special thanks to Danny and Cristina for their help and support from the very beginning which continued into the training camp itself. We were especially thankful for the quick, easy and efficient communication throughout this project.

Everything ran so smoothly. This was very much appreciated by my colleagues and I, especially during such a busy and important time in our season. We wouldn't hesitate to use them again in the future.'

'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.'

'We have freshened it up instead of going to the same place year on year. This is a very good location which we chose after seeing a few venues on an inspection visit.

The Hotel, gym, pool and spa facilities are top class and the 2 pitches, for our exclusive use only, are of a very high standard. There is also a very good selection of extra teambuilding and leisure activities available in the hotel and surrounding area.

Thank you Danny for your excellent support throughout our whole camp, including for the Friendly Match on our final evening.'

David Baldwin, Chief Executive of Burnley FC
'Thank you for all your help in organising our successful training camp in France.

Your support in liaising with the clubs to organise the friendly match was much appreciated, along with your very professional communication in France and back here in the UK throughout this project with myself and all my colleagues.

I look forward to working with you again.'

'We had a lot of training sessions over 10 days so we were very happy to then play the match. We had a good result, three nil (against Farense)... The training camp has been very very good. We have a lovely hotel and pitch, the surroundings are very nice. It's a bit like paradise, I have enjoyed it very much.

The organisation around the team is very professional. The players put a lot of energy in training, the food is great, the weather is good, there is nothing to complain about at all.'

Mark Devlin, Chief Executive of Brentford FC
'I would like to thank you for all your hard work and very professional service in planning and delivering our recent Portugal Training Camp, together with all the travel and flight arrangements.

The communication and service has been excellent from beginning to end.

Our involvement in the Play-Offs meant changes of dates and with the new Management came many additions to our group numbers and individual travel requirements. All was organised very quickly and efficiently, with each aspect overseen by Danny, Clare and Cristina from FTG. The friendly match organised by FTG was also exactly what we needed.

Thanks again for all your help to ensure the camp all went well and we very much look forward to working with you again in the future.'

Rob Rowan, Head of Football Operations of Brentford FC
'This was the perfect venue for our Pre-Season Training Camp. It covered all areas at a very high standard - training pitches, hotel, spa facilities and gym. The local surroundings were perfect for team bonding activities such as go-karting and golf with various eating places for group meals.

Throughout the trip, Danny and his team were always available and very quick to deal with any issues that occured. The staff at the hotel were excellent... I would certainly recommend this hotel to any other Club.'

'The accommodation and pitches are great and the weather's obviously nice so we can stay out here as long as we like - they really enjoy training here... When we go away on these trips, we're sat together, we train together and we live together for four or five days and it bonds you... They're getting to know us and we're getting to know them better as well... The game (against Olhanense) gives us a great chance to look at what we have got in the Squad.'

Paul Mitchell, Head of Recruitment of Chesterfield FC
'The resort is quiet and calm to give our Squad a perfect place to concentrate and prepare. The pitch, gym, food are all high quality and the hotel staff have been so friendly and helpful. Danny has found us a great resort and friendly match, all at short notice. The camp is good value and we would love to come back again in the future!

This is the third year in a row that Full Time Group has organised our Summer Training Camp and it has been another big success. We happily recommend the FTG service to other clubs.'

Ian Hendon and Danny StonesLeyton Orient FC trainingProfessional Soccer Training Camp venue

Leyton Orient FC logoIan Hendon, Manager of Leyton Orient FC
'We spent a lot of time on the training ground, the facilities were fantastic and the on-site pitch was really good. The food was excellent and the resort is in a beautiful quiet location, perfect for what we needed. We had good quality Friendly Matches, all carefully overseen by Danny and the staff.

It was important to get the Squad away to all get to know each other better and to prepare properly, with multiple sessions getting organisation into the boys. It all sets us up really well for the Season ahead.

Thank you Danny for a really well organised camp.'

Lindsey Martin, Club Secretary of Leyton Orient FC
'This was the first time we had been abroad on a training camp for a number of years. Thank you for all your support to myself, all our Staff and Departments in helping us to fully prepare in advance for the trip to Spain. Full Time Group then delivered throughout with all the training camp and travel arrangements.

Everything went really smoothly from flights, transfers, hotel, facilities and the 3 matches. I hope we can work together again soon.'

Dean Cox, Player of Leyton Orient FC
'The whole trip was very good and we managed to get some good games (Middlesbrough and Huddersfield Town) under our belt. There were also some very hard sessions in hot weather so it was very tough... We've worked really hard and it's all about getting ready for August 8th when we take on Barnet.'
