Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Under-18 and Under-23 squads enjoyed the superb facilities at St. George’s Park last week, as both groups took part in team training sessions and behind-closed-doors friendlies at the home of England’s national teams. 

Wolves’ Under-18s finished eighth in the U18 Premier League North last season, winning 10 of their 24 games, whilst the Under-23s secured a fourth-place finish in Premier League 2 Division 2. 

Speaking about their stay at St. George’s Park, U23 Head Coach James Collins said: “The facilities and service was excellent. The pitches were watered and in outstanding condition and the food and social facilities in private areas for us was like having the place to ourselves.”

Jack Scott, a right wing-back for Wolves’ U23 side and the second-youngest player to ever feature for Northern Ireland Under-21s, added: “My stay at St. George’s Park was excellent and all the pitches were in great condition. The gym facilities were also very good and spacious. The food was excellent and gave us all that we needed to be ready for training with lots of space in the rooms and downstairs games area.”

Meanwhile, former Crewe Alexandra and Leyton Orient boss and current Wolves U18 Head Coach Steve Davis, said: “Our PDP pre-season camp at St. George’s Park has been an excellent base to enjoy spending some quality time together. The facilities from the pitches to accommodation and food were top class and have allowed us to prepare the players ready for the new season.”
