Jose Mourinho has not been the only one winging his way over to Milan!
The Hitchin Sunday League outfit Broadmead ventured into European competition by representing Comet country in the Coppa Anglo-italiano organised by international charity 'Emergency' in aid of civilian victims of war.
Broadmead played the cream of Milan's amateur teams, as well as attending a special tour of the San Siro stadium, home to both AC and Inter Milan.
The tour ended in glory for the Meaders by winning the tournament in front of the Milanese fans.
