DUFFIELD DYNAMO INTO EUROPE
A team of young footballers from Duffield pitted themselves against two Dutch sides during a recent tour of the Netherlands. Duffield Dynamo Under 18Tigers also enjoyed a visit to the Amsterdam Arena - the home of Ajax - the country's most successful club. A total of 16 lads, aged 17 and18, along with six brave dads,headed to Holland to enjoy some football and a bit of culture.After a tour of the Dutch capital on a canal cruise, the Tigers faced their first opponents AVV Swift, who boast a new £3m home. Dynamos team manager Stewart Russell said "Unfortunately, despite advising our relative footballing level, we had the misfortune to be pitched against their Academy first team. The half-time score saw Duffield trailing 1-0, which was extremely creditable, but the final result of 6-0 was a fair reflection of the gap in respective quality." >>>
