Darnell trains with the Falkland Islands Football Team

In the run up to the 19th NatWest International Island Games Guernsey 2023, we have been joining some of Team Falkland Islands in their training sessions for the competition.

Football was a highly oversubscribed sport this year with the Falklands lucky enough to draw a spot as one of the 16 teams competing. They’ll face a tough group stage in Guernsey which has meant some very strict training.

We sent Darnell along to learn more, but before he was allowed anywhere near a pitch, the team put him through his paces with their, very intense, circuit training workout.
