KING John School’s Year 10 and 11 boys football team have been living the American dream.

They toured San Antonio, Texas, playing five matches against American teams, picking up three wins.

The three winning games came against local clubs, while the team also got the chance to play against professional academy youth teams.

The team made the most of their free time, visiting SeaWorld, Austin and The Alamo.

They also watched an American Football game and a a college soccer match.

PE teacher Jon Edwards said: “They say everything is bigger in Texas.

“Well, this experience was bigger than most, and the pupils should be commended on being fine ambassadors of the King John School.”
