At the end of last year, Brentford FC’s official travel partner, Simplexity Travel, gave two students from the BFC Community Sports Trust’s Elite Development programme the chance to play at the famous Wembley Stadium.
The Elite Development programme is an opportunity for talented young male footballers (aged 16-18) to play for the Brentford FC U18 Academy Development Squad and gain a BTEC Sports qualification at West Thames College.
Those selected study at West Thames College for a recognised BTEC qualification, whilst gaining elite footballing skills from Brentford FC’s Community Sports Trust’s professional coaching staff. Study units include body systems, practical sport, fitness testing and training, tactical awareness and psychology. The team also play competitive matches against other Academy teams in a league.
The two lucky students who selected by their coaches were Jayden Ndokala and Jaden Alvis Henry (pictured above).
A special thanks to Simplexity Travel Management for donating the places and giving Jayden and Jaden the unforgettable day out.
