Sporting success roundup
Posted on: 8th January 2021
Sport and Sports Academy students have continued to impress on both a local and national level despite the unique challenges of the last year.
Seventeen-year-old Milly Mott from Poole was called-up to an England Football U-18 training camp at St George’s Park after catching the eye of talent scouts.
Meanwhile, keen yachtsman Drew Barnes (18), from Christchurch, was selected for the GB Transition Group’s Laser Standard Winter 2020/21.
Another success saw several students compete for Brockenhurst FC U18s. They saw their efforts rewarded with an FA Youth Cup run that ended in the second round against elite club Newport County.
Head of Sport, Kevin Jones, said: “These stories of success, coupled with the relentless energy and commitment that all Sport and Academy students have shown this year in unprecedented times, highlight just how much of a credit these students are to the college and their local community.”
