Wembley trip for students
Students from Weston College recently enjoyed a trip to Wembley to watch England.
AMONG the thousands who watched England’s recent win over Sweden at Wembley were a group of Weston College students who kept an extra close eye on the game.
Twenty eight students and three members of staff, all from the college’s sports and public services department, travelled to Wembley to see England record a 1-0 win, their first against Sweden since 1968.
However, the trip had a practical purpose too. The students were asked to submit a post-match analysis of the game, looking at tactics and techniques and using biomechanical methods to monitor performance.
Ryan Northmore, Weston College lecturer and first team coach for Weston FC, said: “It was a fantastic opportunity for our students to experience an England match. We were all excited about going and we were not disappointed. It was inspiring and educational to see top international footballers at such close quarters.”

It is hoped that the success of the trip will now lead to other enrichment opportunities for students on the College’s sports courses.
