Robins skipper Sean Long visits Football and Education programme

5 February 2024

Robins captain Sean Long paid a visit to the Cheltenham Town Community Trust's Football and Education programme students on Monday afternoon.

Ahead of their Community & Education Football Alliance League (CEFA) fixture away to Bristol Rovers, Long visited the students to help motivate them for the final few games of their season.

Long shared his own experiences from his time in the professional game, from the lows of the start to the 2023/24 campaign, to the highs of winning the League Two title and going face-to-face with Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

The Trust is established as one of the top schemes in the EFL Education & Football Programme and In 2023 moved into its twelfth year delivering its full time education programme alongside professional football coaching.

The programme's aim is to provide the students with knowledge and expertise in the field of sport, which can help lead to a career in the likes of sports coaching, P.E. teaching, physiotherapy, sports management or sports science.

It was also a pleasure to welcome Scott Walker, Community Liaison Executive for the South from the PFA, who helped run the visit as well as catching up with Long, who is the Trust's participation and engagement ambassador.
