Mervue will be taking 24 players and 5/6 staff on the trip and club secretary Declan McDonnell acknowledged the lengths to which the squad have gone to to make this trip a possibilty.
"It's a credit to both the players and the coaching staff. Two-thirds of the cost of the training camp has been raised by the players and it's something you don't hear about at League of Ireland level. They're actually paying to go training and that's a credit to them and the mentality these players have. It's also a mark of the respect they have for the club, and for both Johnny and Mark (Herrick) in particular, that they're prepared to dig in to their own pockets for this trip."

Our players and staff paid half the cost to go on a training camp in Spain a few years back so it's not totally unheard of.

Hope they're not going the day Bus Eireann are on strike!

They're going to Marbella, were due to play Pats there but Pats have cancelled their camp AFAIK.

Mervue are playing some Swiss crowd on Friday. Great to see local amateur players giving something back to their local club. In the current economic climate. I couldn't see this being done at any other club
