PHC (Bermuda) - Pre-season Tour to England

Pembroke Hamilton Club (PHC) of Bermuda travelled over to England for a week-long pre-season tour in preparation for their domestic campaign due to commence in September 2004.

Their tour included extensive training sessions at Aston University playing fields, 3 games against semi-professional English clubs, the opportunity to watch live English pre-season friendly games, a tour of Manchester United's Old Trafford Stadium and sightseeing and shopping excursions in London.

PHC were accommodated in city centre 3/4 star hotels both in Birmingham (Quality Hotel, Hagley Road) and in London (St Giles Hotel, Tottenham Court Road). These hotels combined leisure facilities with a central location ideal for sightseeing and exploring the cities during the team's leisure time.

PSC also provided the PHC team squad with private eating at all times along with specific pre-match meals 3 hours before kick off in each of the three games played.

The response that PSC received from the tour was fantastic. Many of the players have since enquired about coming over on a PSC UK Football Break and the management fully intend to make a similar tour next year as can be seen below: -
