Trust heading to the home of English football

Staff and students from the Bristol City Community Trust have been selected to represent the South West in a national ‘All Star’ futsal event taking place at St George's Park on April 3rd.

Students: Cody Vile, Tom Withers, and Jimmy Wooland, from the Bristol City Community Trust’s BTEC level 3 extended Sports Diploma programme have all been selected to represent the South West in this year's tournament based on their attitude towards learning and their practical ability.

In addition to this, Assistant Lecturer at the trust, Jordan Guard, and Community Coach and former student of the Community Trust's education programme, Gary Bell, have also been selected to represent the South West as Head Coach and Assistant coach respectively.

This is not the first time that students from the Bristol City Community Trust have been awarded the honour of representing the South West in this national tournament, with former student and now qualified coach Bradley Caton not only being selected to represent the region, but also winning the accolade of Player of the Tournament in last years competition.

Bristol City Community Coach and Assistant coach of the South West team at this year's tournament, Gary Bell, told the trust, “playing at the home of England football is an incredible opportunity for our students and it will be a day that they’ll never forget.

“I’m really looking forward to it and I’m sure that the lads will do us proud.”

Sports Lecturer and Futsal lead at the trust Billy Whittaker commented, “The commitment level and the work rate that the boys consistently put into both their studies and their futsal is excellent, and it’s great that they are receiving the recognition that they deserve for this by being called up to represent their region.”
