January 7, 2015

West Cheshire College sports students Eddie Speed and Callum Glover are celebrating after being selected for the Welsh National Squad and for Welsh Academy League side Cefn Druids respectively.


Eddie Speed, 17, from Chester, currently plays for Air Bus Under 19s when he got the national call up  whilst Callum Glover, 18, recently made his first team debut for Cefn Druids.

Both students are members of the College’s dedicated Football Academy which allows them to visit local professional and semi-professional football clubs. They are also able to partake in coaching displays and educational visits whilst working towards their BTEC qualification in Sport.

Eddie who is studying a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sports, said: “I’m delighted to have been selected for the Welsh Academy League. The College course has definitely helped me to get selected.

“The tutors have been an incredible support and having the chance to constantly play football during my course has really helped me to grow as a footballer.

“In the future I would like to get a football scholarship in America and I would love to play football around the world.”

Jason Doggett, Sports Tutor at West Cheshire College, said: “The College is so proud of Callum and Eddie’s success.

“We have a high level of talent at the College and we work with our students to improve their skills and help them get the ability and confidence to progress with their sport.”
