Viljoen brings over youngsters to Woodbridge
TOWN STALWART: Former Ipswich midfielder Colin Viljoen has been back in the area from his native South Africa and he ended a successful trip for the Alberton club with a match against Woodbridge Town Under-11’s at Notcutt’s Park.
The midfielder, who played over 300 first team games at Portman Road from 1966/67 to 1977/78, was also over last year giving young South African lads experience of English football.
And after games against Ipswich Town and Colchester United, the nine boys on this whistle stop tour lasting just five days certainly experienced how bad weather can be in this country.
The two sides put on a great show under floodlights and in driving rain; something which the South African’s had never experienced before – and on the eve of their return home.
And invitation has been made for Woodbridge youngsters to make a trip to the country that successfully hosted the World Cup finals this summer.
