Gloucestershire College will be running a men’s 11-a-side football team from the Gloucester Campus in 2016-2017 season. Competing in the AoC West Midlands 3E league, students will have the chance to play each week in the league as well as the AoC Knock out Cup.
Training will take place every Monday afternoon at Abbeydale Community Centre, with free transport from the college to the training ground. This year, there will also be a chance for students to develop their skills off-the-pitch by applying for our Football Activator roles. Being a Football Activator will allow you access to Continuous Professional Development (CPD) in order to develop your coaching or officiating role in football.
Head Coach – Christopher Gardner
