Although I had completed my A-Levels at school, upon leaving, I still felt I wasn’t quite ready for university. I did however, want to stay in education. This qualification, alongside the opportunity to improve my football skills through the Tonbridge Angels’ Football Academy, seemed an ideal way to bridge that gap and enhance my knowledge at the same time. The facilities here are excellent. The pitches we play on are of a really high standard – probably one of the best in the league – and the coaches are really knowledgeable. I have really enjoyed playing in the Academy team and the course overall has helped me to develop a better understanding of sport. This will really help me when I’m at university next year studying sports coaching.
