ETBU Football Players and Coaches Detained in London

Marshall, Texas (ETBU Release) - ETBU's annual missions trip was cut short over the weekend when the group of 11 players and two coaches was detained at Heathrow Airport and ultimately not allowed to enter London.

The group was to have been in Britain for a week-long stay at The Elam Institute, to help with rebuilding projects there, but British immigration officials denied the group entry and sent them home Sunday.

No immediate indication as to why the group was denied entrance was posted, but in all, the team spent 24 hours in the London airport.
