BACT’S FOOTBALL & EDUCATION WIN THE COMMUNITY & EDUCATION FOOTBALL ALLIANCE LEAGUE

BURTON Albion Community Trust’s Football & Education side recently won the Community & Education Alliance Central One League.

BACT’s Football and Education Programme is delivered in partnership with Burton & South Derbyshire College. The programme is designed to guide males and females aged 16-19 through their journey as student athletes.

The Community & Education Football Alliance (CEFA) is a football competition run for EFL Club Community Organisations, featuring teams representing Premier League and EFL Clubs across the country.

The boys first-team stormed to victory in the Central one league, losing just one game throughout the whole season and scoring 60 goals.

Football Development Manager, Ben Webster said “We are really proud of the boys for winning their Central 1 division this year. The boys have performed outstanding on the pitch, but also in the classroom, with their effort and application at college.

“Recent successes of 4 of the boys playing regularly in the academy U19s, and with some of the second years securing scholarships in America, shows the strength of the football provision the coaching staff have offered this year”.

Lee Mitchell, Director of Curriculum at Burton and South Derbyshire College, said: “Effective collaboration between the college and BACT allows learners on the Football & Education programme to succeed in both their academic and athletic aspirations. The college are proud supporters and would like to congratulate all 3 of our teams on performing so well during the 2324 season. The year has witnessed many success stories concluding with the outstanding achievement of the boys first-team being crowned CEFA Central One League Champions”.
