A high-flying football team from Weston College has made it into the national finals of a knockout tournament for the third consecutive year.

The young stars from the College's Foundation Learning (Extension Studies) course recently took part in the regional heats of the British Colleges Sport Ability Counts annual five-a-side tournament at South Devon College.

Two teams from Weston College competed against South Devon College, South Gloucestershire and Stroud College and two teams from Bridgwater College.

Weston College were the eventual victors finishing the tournament unbeaten, scoring 17 goals and conceding none across the five matches played.

The triumphant Weston side will now go on to represent the South West in the National finals due to be held at the University of Bath in April.

This is the third consecutive year Weston College has represented the South West, achieving fourth position last April.

Nick Chadwick, Weston College lecturer in Foundation Learning, said: "The team spirit, resilience, decorum and fair play shown by the Foundation Learning students during this competition was exceptional and these attributes were reflected in the outstanding results that followed."

Specialist support tutor Sam Latouche, who coaches the team, added: "To represent the South West for the third consecutive year at the National Finals is a real testament to the team's planning, preparation, dedication and training."
