The players then divided into groups to test their sporting general knowledge in a quiz. After three rounds of questions there were two teams that need to be split with a tie breaking question. The eventual winners were the team of Lucas Panayi, Sheldon Lindesay, Jesse Lane and Aiden Donnachie.
The squad then went onto play ten pin bowling to continue the festivities. Jesse Lane was the highest scoring player with a score of 113, closely followed by Jesse McCarty with an impressive 112. Chris Palmer topped the coaching staff score board with a mighty 123, with Ian Sampson behind with a 108.

The Academy will re open in the new year on Monday 5th January 2015, and will be staright back in action that week in the Football Conference Youth Alliance against Mansfield Town.
