‘‘Great meeting players from different schools and sharing experiences in a professional and exciting environment.’’ Josh, age 14, Wilson’s School (PSV Day)

‘‘I really enjoyed playing the competitive fixtures, encouraging us to score under pressure. Penalties to win was a good addition and great practise for me as I take penalties for my team.’’
Seyon, age 14, Wilson’s School (PSV Day)

‘‘It was a great afternoon for the pupils and staff. The mix of theory and practical was good, plenty of opportunity to ask questions. The coaching staff for PSV had an exceptional manner getting the best out of the pupils with effective practices, challenging all who were involved without any prior knowledge of their ability. They were clear, concise and effective. A very enjoyable afternoon, thank you Dulwich for hosting the event and inviting me and my pupils.’’
