Dreams of playing professional football are rife as the new season has begun for the students on the Duchy College Plymouth Argyle Football Club (PAFC) Football Education Programme.
Students at Duchy Stoke Climsland College have had their first two games in the Devon Wednesday League and won both matches.
Trained by Plymouth Argyle coach Bobby Hopkinson, the team has hit the ground running after finishing league champions last season.
BTEC Level 3 student, Adam Patterson, is “really pleased with the good start to the season and how well the training has been going”.
“It is great having Bobby as a coach again this year,” he continued.
“I am so pleased to have been selected as captain his year and hope we can carry on from last year’s success.”
Students will be up against the likes of HMS Raleigh, Devonport High School for Boys and University of Plymouth Student Union amongst others.
Team Lead for Sport at Duchy College, Darren Evans, said the course offers students an excellent opportunity to develop their footballing ability whilst studying for a vocational qualification.
“The partnership with Plymouth Argyle FC gives the students a chance to work with and get the feel of a professional football club,” he added.
