"We have only recently been to the Middle East which we enjoyed immensely and it's a fantastic opportunity for them to go on trips like this with the football club.

"We have brought a few lads from the Under-16 team out here with us like Adam Pepper and Jack Metcalf and it is a wonderful experience for them.

"The Academy has been to the USA for the last three years at the end of the season and it is to essentially enhance and support the work our young coaches are doing there at this moment in time.

"Our coach Gareth Evans has been doing some great work on behalf of the club and it's a scheme to develop the game of football in less disadvantaged areas of the USA.

"We will be playing three games during this tour and we will be based in Atlanta. We are going to also visit North Carolina and Alabama and we will also be doing some coaching clinics.

"It will be a good test for our boys because we are told the teams we will be playing against will be very athletic and organised."
