Autus has agreed to sponsor Up Holland FC. The club plays in the Wigan & District Football League and Autus founder David Clough manages and stars (sorry, that should read – starts) for the club at left back.
Player and trainer Brendan Feeney has worked and coached in Holland and organised an excellent tour of Holland in May 2009. The tour was a huge success and the Dutch have agreed to tolerate the Up Holland tour team for at least one more campaign.
The tour kicks off with a match in Driebergen, Utrecht, on Friday May 28. Saturday sees CTO of Amsterdam host the tourists with a concluding match against SC Botlek of Rotterdam on Sunday 30th. David has allowed a day of Rest & Relaxationin Amsterdam on the Monday, for those not confined to the treatment table, before the flight home. His main concern is that some older members of the squad may require Rest & Recuperation after a day off in Amsterdam.
Autus is providing a new, sponsored strip for the tour and David hopes that the team’s performance is as sharp and slick as its appearance.
