Spike have been building a good relationship with the Guernsey FA and were asked to create a brand for the new Guernsey College Football Academy. We created a brand that will promote the island further afield and also keeps its roots firmly in the island. It was an exciting project to be part of and we are pleased to support such a worthwhile project taking a progressive approach to education.
Students will be able to benefit from the top quality coaching provided by Tony Vance and his fellow football coaches whilst continuing their academic education on a BTEC Sports course, at levels 1,2 or 3.
The programme, which starts for the first time in September is a pilot scheme in which the coaching and training sessions are timetabled within the BTEC courses. It is hoped that in subsequent years that talented footballers attending other post 16 institutions in the Island will be able to benefit from the academy structure. It is also hoped that other sports could be introduced in a similar way to enable further development of Guernsey’s youngsters who are talented in other sports.
