TW Sports Director and Head Coach, Tim Wareing, was a travel agent for ten years before switching to a full time football coach.
Over the year we love our players to experience traveling and visiting professional clubs. This is where positive memories and experiences are made along with great friendships. Our teams have travelled to England, Scotland, Holland, Spain and Portugal to name a few destinations. They have trained and played at the same training grounds as their heroes they watch on television. We have had stadium tours at some of the best European Stadiums along with the security of travel counsellors and guides.
We have opportunities to organise for opposing teams anywhere in the globe to use our experts that organise our tours! If you would like to experience visiting and playing against the likes of Newcastle United, Sunderland, PSV Eindhoven, Ajax, FC Barcelona and many more pro teams just complete the form below with your details and our qualified team will be in contact with you!
Our Team …
Travel Counsellor – Coleen Matovu
My name is Coleen and I run my own independent Travel business – Coleen Matovu Travel Counsellors. I have been in travel for over 15 years, 9 of those so far have been as a Travel Counsellor. I have worked with TW Sports to arrange travel needs for both their outbound trips and also some of their clients inbound travel and we have a great relationship.
At Travel Counsellors we lead the industry in Financial Protection – something that is extremely important in this climate. We operate under the UK ATOL scheme and therefore can tailor-make any trip requirements you may have. I have an in-house groups department that have access to many hotels, flights and local services.
My remit doesn’t solely focus on group travel – I cover all sorts of leisure and business travel including not limited to Honeymoons, family holidays, ski trips and city breaks.
Being a self employed, home based travel agent gives me the flexibility to work hours that suit myself and my clients. My clients know they can contact me at a time that suits them – and rather than dealing with faceless call centres – they have a much more personal individual service when they come to me.

He works with grassroots to professional clubs. Bert-Jan organises a number of tours per month for clubs from Northern Ireland, England, Holland, Spain and USA!
TW Braga U14’s enjoyed a wonderful weekend in Durham organised through our travel partners. We had our own luxury coach and driver for the weekend along with great accommodation and first class meals.
We enjoyed training sessions and games against Premier League Academy opposition at their training grounds. It was a terrific experience to play against Newcastle United and Sunderland. We also enjoyed a stadium tour of St. James Park, home of Newcastle United. We were fortunate to take in an EPL game at the Stadium of Light to watch Sunderland play Swansea.
This is an experience that will live with each of our players a life time. The organisation skills of Bert-Jan (BJ) and Coleen ensured the weekend ran seamless.
