Chichester College a ‘Super Hub' for football

Written by Eleanor on 19th April 2019

Chichester College has been named as an Association of Colleges (AOC) football Super Hubs across England.

The college is one of just 22 colleges from across the country to have been selected for the project, which – working in partnership with The FA - has been formed to demonstrate the excellence and innovation of football and futsal in Further Education (FE).

It means the college will be working with other college, The FA and AoC to introduce and develop new initiatives as well as access additional support in the delivery of football and futsal at Chichester College.

David Daniel, football lecturer at Chichester College, said: “We are delighted to have been selected as a football Super Hub – it is a direct reflection of the commitment the college shows not only to the development of football, but to sport as a whole.

“We are proud to be home to two successful football academies, working closely with Bognor Town and Chichester Ladies football clubs to develop young talent and we are already seeing our young players progressing into the first teams of both clubs.

“This new partnership project with The FA and AoC will provide even more fantastic opportunities to our players.”

Chichester College’s inclusion builds on several recent successes for the college’s football department, which has seen four players called up to international duty – Liam Brady and Dylan Jelley for the England Colleges men’s squad, LouLou Robson for England Colleges women’s squad and Alex Collighan for the Northern Ireland Under 19s women’s squad.
