Crowned Champions 🏆

Blackpool FC Sports College Football Academy Students Crowned Champions of the EFL Community and Education Football Alliance North West 2 

Students from Blackpool FC Sports College have been eagerly awaiting the outcome of the EFL CEFA season 2019/20 since lockdown was announced in March this year.

The CEFA Management Committee have ratified a decision to formally end the 2019/20 CEFA season. As a result, and as per the decision taken by League One and Two Clubs ratified by the EFL Board the final League standings have been finalised using an unweighted Points Per Game calculation.

Blackpool were top of the table back in March after 10 games, with the only defeat of the season coming to Carlisle Utd.

It was the plan to award all teams with their league winner’s trophy at the EFL Championship Play Off Final held at Wembley but due to the current climate, this will not be taking place unfortunately.

Blackpool FC Community Trust plan to hold a virtual presentation evening with the students, who have just recently finished their studies for this academic year by remote learning.

Tom Hanslip, captain of the team this year said, “There’s been a real togetherness with the team this year, which has made it far more enjoyable to play in. We have worked a lot harder for each other and been a lot more patient when things weren’t going our way”. 

The team have had an excellent season and the title is thoroughly deserved.

Blackpool FC Sports College are still accepting applications for September for students.
