More than 60 members visited the Academy training ground at Bishop Burton. 48 members went by coach, and the others went in their own transport.

We were made very welcome and were extremely impressed with the facilities that are there. Although it was a cold day, we managed to watch some training.

Afterwards, we all assembled in one of the refectories at Bishop Burton college, for lunch. Some of the trainers joined us to chat at the tables.

The college made us aware that anyone can go there for lunch – you do not need to book in advance.
