Liverpool's Academy have earned glowing praise for their conduct while on tour in Spain.

The club's 1995 and 1997 age groups enjoyed a week in Menorca recently and stayed in a hotel bustling with holidaymakers.

Their attitude throughout the seven day break was exemplary and was capped when a letter was published in the Daily Mail hailing their behaviour.

Tour leader Phil Roscoe told "The behaviour and attitude of the players throughout the trip was of an excellent standard and to receive praise from members of the public staying at the hotel is a fantastic accolade for all of them to receive.

"This high standard of behaviour is something that we try and replicate with every group that we take on tour domestically and abroad to help instil the traits needed to progress as a player on and off the field here at Liverpool."

Here's the letter that appeared in the Daily Mail last week:

Lovely Liverpudlians
I've just returned from a three week holiday in Menorca. Everything was peaceful until the third week when the hotel was over-run with 200-odd youngsters, aged 13-19 years.

They were in groups from Barcelona, Majorca and Liverpool Football Club's youth Academies, as well as other Spanish sporting organisations.

We're often told about the British children misbehaving - here and abroad. The noise and misdemeanour of these children caused numerous complaints to the hotel management - but there was one exception.

The coaches from Liverpool were in full control of their youngsters - about 30 in number - and their manners, politeness and behaviour were exemplary.

I'm a Manchester United fan and don't praise Liverpool FC lightly - so this is praise indeed.

In these days, when we often read about Brits behaving badly abroad, these Liverpool youngsters made me proud to be British - and even more proud to be Lancastrian.
