The 1st Football team is unbeaten in 13 matches and their successes this term have included a 3-1 win over Cirencester and a 2-1 victory over Hartpury College. However, the biggest win so far this season came from the 2nd Team, who beat Walsall College 15-0. There was also a first game for the 3rd Team who beat Solihull College 9-1.

Meanwhile, the rugby team bounced back from a 30-16 defeat to King Edwards Stourbridge with a 19-14 win over Birmingham Metropolitan College. The 1st and 2nd Teams also played in the Rugby Sevens. The 1st Team won their pool beating Birmingham Met, Dudley and King Edwards Nuneaton on their way to the final where they came runners up to Hereford.

Sport & Health Curriculum Leader Lee Jones commented:

“We’re really proud of the progress being made by all our performance squads this year. They’ve got brand new training kits this year and their new professional look seems to have spurred them on when they are competing on the pitch and the court. We have had some really impressive results so far this season and the attitude and commitment in both games and in training has been great to see. Their participation in sport adds to their College experience.”
