Itinerary for AFC Waverton visit to Chester City13th December 2008


Players are to arrive at Wood Farm Training Facility in time for training sessions that begin at 11.45am prompt. AFC Waverton Managers/Coaches are required to stay for the training sessions but parents may go home/Christmas shopping if they wish although they are welcome to stay and watch. There will be a catering van selling food, tea, coffee etc. at the training ground for anyone who wants to stay and watch.


Players will need boots and shin pads (they will be training on grass) – and please ensure they bring tracksuits, hats, gloves, trainers and other appropriate warm clothing to wear after training. They will also need to bring a packed lunch or money to buy lunch from the catering van (they will get a drink and fruit bag after training).


The training ground is at Deeside Lane off Sealand Road. Best way to get there is to go down Sealand Road, past the large B&Q Warehouse. From the lights at B&Q, carry on down Sealand Road (signposted Queensferry) for approx 2.4 miles until you come to the Golf driving range on the left. Turn left here (sign for WT Banks – Wood Farm) on to Deeside Lane. Follow Deeside Lane round for about 1.3 miles until you come to the large white building which is Land of Fires Showroom (mind the large ramps in road here). Just after here turn left and Wood Farm Training Facility is about 1/10th of a mile on the left.


Parents who have been requested by their managers to help with transport must be back at Wood Farm by 1.15pm at the latest to help transport the children to the Deva Stadium at approximately 1.35pm.


On arrival at the Deva Stadium, the children will have their packed lunches and they will then be taken on a guided tour of the ground in smaller groups. Because of the large number we are taking it won’t be possible to get us all in the changing rooms to meet the players – so instead when we are all in our seats (we will have an enclosed area of the stand all to ourselves) the players will come over to us before the game and sign autographs etc. – so make sure players or parents bring pens with them.


Parents and children just coming to the match are to collect their tickets from Graham Frost who will be at the Main Ticket Office between 2.15 and 2.30pm.


The children will then meet up with the adults in the main stand to watch the game. Parents not coming to the game can collect their children at 4.45pm from outside the main ticket office.


If possible, players should wear their AFC Waverton kits, Training jackets etc. Managers/Coaches are responsible for their own teams players and must arrange transport to/from Wood Farm and the Deva Stadium.
