After an early breakfast, we boarded the bus for a scenic five hour trip to Manchester.

Then we checked into Hotel Football for some rest before our next competitive match.

In our second of three competitive matches, we played Orange Soccer Academy. We won 4-0 and want to thank OS Academy Player Christian Bolton for the kindness and sportsmanship he shared via an MKSC Facebook post after our game.

"Hi my name is Christian Bolton, I played for OS Academy in England against your tour side (team) last nite in Preston. Just wanted to say well played and thanks for the game, hopefully I will get to visit you in Milwaukee one day."


We replied with an invitation that should he make it to Milwaukee, we'd like to show him our home, Uihlein Soccer Park, and share our great city with him!

Our day concluded with a team dinner at the hotel and some relaxation in preparation for Thursday's competitive match against Liverpool and Everton players.
