Libby Sims named CEFA player of the Season

Bristol City Community Trust student Libby Sims has been named the CEFA (Community & Education Football Alliance) player of season at this year’s EFL Awards.

Libby, who is currently enrolled on Bristol City Community Trust’s BTEC level 3 extended diploma in sport, impressed the judging panel with her outstanding commitment to both her football and her studies.

The CEFA league, which was introduced at the beginning of the 2018/19 season, is an official EFL competition and is open to all of those enrolled on post-16 education programmes with their club’s community organisation.

After collecting her award from BBC 5 Live presenter and awards host, Colin Murray, Sims told the Trust that, "It's amazing! I was very nervous to get up in front of all these people, I'm new to this, but to be recognised is brilliant. I can't put it into words, I don't know how to sum it up. I love playing football, that's just me."

The Trust was also shortlisted for the Community Club of the Year award having already attained the regional accolade for the South West and Wales.
