Player Testimonials

See what some of our past student athletes had to say about their time studying and playing whilst part of the Football & Education Programme:
"The football & education programme gave me lots of skills to develop as a player and allowed me to do full time training every day and gave me opportunities to train with the scholars and first team. It enabled me to be able to progress on to Kidderminster Harriers and gave me a good foundation to go there and do well, and then on to Gloucester City. Without the U19 programme I don’t think I would be in as good a position as I am now." Alex Avenall
"The programme has been one of my most enjoyable years of football, with academy standard coaching and top-quality training and match facilities week in week out. With the opportunity to train with the scholars as well, the programme really molded me into a new player this year and being one of the main reasons how I went onto make my Hellenic league debut with over 300 supporters watching." Jon Dix
"As a player wanting to develop and be the best I can be I think this programme guides me in that direction of achieving my goal. Also, what I love about this programme is there are opportunities everywhere from training with scholars from getting routes to the USA for a career in football." Sam Jackson
"The CTFC U19s programme has been incredibly rewarding in terms of personal development. Being helped by top class coaches, who give feedback and guidance on how to improve myself as a player, is an experience I highly recommend to those who are looking for a good level of football with a tight-knit group. The opportunities that arise within the course itself, such as playing at the Cheltenham Town stadium, are unmatched and are just benefits to an already amazing footballing experience." Ethen Gudger
