Football Academy are top of the league

Forget this year’s World Cup, NPTC Group’s Football Academy, based at the Newtown Campus, has been celebrating their own big win after becoming champions of the West Midlands, Category 3a Football League.

Football Academy Tutor, Gareth Watkins, explained: “This is the first time the College has finished at the top of the table and it followed some gutsy performances towards the last part of the season. The team, who are a mixture of first and second year Football Academy students, have prided themselves on the philosophy of performance over result and have been rewarded with the championship title.”

In a hard battle, NPTC Group’s victory was tough, with just one point clear over their nearest rivals, South Staffordshire College.

Gareth Watkins added: “I am really pleased for tis group of players as they have pushed themselves physically and mentally over the past few months. We have employed a rotation system that has experienced a variety of formations which is a testament to the whole squad.”
