Fantastic news just in… our Women's Football Academy yesterday won the British Colleges Sport (BCS) Regional 7s tournament and will now compete at the National Finals in Bath. The Women’s Football Academy will join our Trampoline Academy and Tennis Academy stars who were also Regional BCS 2013 winners.
A delighted Adam Douthwaite, our Sports Development Officer - Academies, commented: "I am extremely proud of the team’s performance which reflects the high standards and hard work produced by the whole 28 player squad this season. To go the whole tournament without conceding a goal and playing football in the manner we did makes me excited for the national finals and the season as a whole."
The Women's Football, Trampoline and Tennis academies will be representing the London Region in April 2014 at the BCS National Finals in Bath.
Our Trampoline Academy students triumphed after hosting the BCS London Regional trampoline tournament on 6th November with teams from Newham Sixth Form College, Havering College, St Charles College and Kingston College competing against each other for only 6 individual places in the Regional team.
The Kingston College team performed brilliantly finishing 1st place overall, with Courtney St Lewis Davies also finishing the event in 1st place. Courtney, along with her team-mate Sarah Chandler, was selected to represent the Regional team. Both girls will compete in the BCS National Finals in Bath in April 2014. Katie Wallington will be the reserve for the Team at the event.
Sarah Warren-Smith, Kingston College Trampoline Academy Director and Regional organiser, commented: “I am extremely proud of the ladies’ performance, particularly as it was Sarah and Katie’s first ever trampoline competition.”
