Thomas Roberts Captains Adidas Select to win over Ajax
The week has continued for Rush Select player Thomas Roberts and Select coach Nik Penn, with two further training sessions at the Ajax Academy from the Ajax coaching staff. Tommy excelled in the technical sessions and was rewarded with the honor captaining the team for the first game that was against Ajax B14. The morning saw a tour of the Ajax Amsterdam Arena, and then with some down time after lunch the players went back to the training academy to play Ajax. After going 1-0 down, the boys rallied back to win 2-1, a deserved victory against a very good opposition.
Tommy, Nik and the rest of the team will play AZ Alkmaar on Thursday following a couple more training sessions to continue the education.
