On Sunday, 26th March, 43 students from four different year groups embarked an exciting visit to Wembley Stadium to watch the England National Football Team compete in a World Cup qualifier against a stubborn Lithuanian side.
Armed with more sweets than Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, the group set off from Borough Road on the morning of Mothering Sunday, with four members of staff, hoping to see some of the Country’s top players deliver a much needed three points, to help kick start England’s qualifying campaign.
Upon entry to the ground, the students were amazed at how staggeringly good their seats were, as they sat only five rows back from their heroes sporting the three lions on their shirts.
Jermaine Defoe’s first half finish meant that England had a lead to defend as half time approached, and a dominant second half display featuring a further goal from Leicester City hotshot, Jamie Vardy, meant that the home team came away with a well deserved 2-0 win, much to the delight of the PCSA pupils.
The long journey home wasn’t enough to dampen the group’s spirits, as they belted out a variety of choruses to keep themselves and the staff entertained. Special mention goes to Scott Chatterton, who’s renditions of Marvin Gaye and George Michael were particular highlights!
The trip was another example of what fantastic ambassadors the Academy has, as all students were an absolute credit to us all, and a pleasure to spend the day with!
