For the last four years, Claudelands Rovers (including players not from Rovers) have sent a team to The Joeys World Cup in Australia and for the last four years this team has won. Claudelands Rovers is all about fostering dreams and helping players acheive those dreams. 

Every year a select group of players are chosen to attend the Joey's Football Tour to Germany and in 2015 one of our own Tiana Hill has been select as a partial scholarship recipient to attend this prestigous trip. She will be exposed to coaches from Club SV Elversberg and FC Frankfurt with the possiblity of a playing future in Germany. 

Tiana currently plays in the Claudelands Rovers Northern League Premier team having made the step up from the winning Northern League Premier Reserve squad, as well as WaiBOP FTC national winners in 2015.  

At only 15 years old, these are massive achievements for such a young player. The trip will take place from June 16th 2016 to July 16th 2016 and Tiana needs your help fundraising to get her there.
