Team spirit is important in any organisation and at a football club, it is perhaps more important than most.
Therefore, the players of Exeter City visited Go Ape in Haldon Forest last week in a team bonding exercise organised by captain Danny Coles, who wanted he and his team-mates to partake in an exercise that was fun, interactive and inclusive.
“It’s important in any workplace to get along well with colleagues and we’re no different at Exeter City,” Coles said. “We have had a few new arrivals in the summer and I wanted to get everyone together to spend a bit of time together in a different environment, away from the training ground.
“It was a fantastic day and Go Ape were excellent, accommodating hosts. I think a few of the lads conquered some fears by travelling down those zipwires, and everyone enjoyed socialising in a different context than normal. It was a great way to spend a spare afternoon.”
Go Ape operate 29 courses around the country and the players spent their time swinging between trees, flying down zipwires, leaping off ‘Tarzan Swings’ and taking in the stunning Devonian scenery from the treetops.
