LCFC's Mendy officially opens our 3G pitch
On Tuesday 17 January, Nampalys Mendy and the LCFC Community Trust team officially opened our new 3G pitch. Students were lucky enough to have a kick around with the Leicester City star and take part in a Q&A session.
Mendy said: “In France at my school, we didn’t have pitches like this so it’s a big difference. This is a big college and in England you are lucky. For the children, it is very good to play on a good pitch.
The pitch is utilised in PE lessons and during extra-curricular activities by every single student. LCFC Community Trust also run a Premier League Kicks project on a Tuesday evening which is designed to inspire boys, girls and vulnerable young people to engage with football and to give them opportunities which they may not have received through other channels.
Tom Campbell, Principal commented: “It’s great to bring a bit of Leicester City into school life and make it that bit more tangible. Certainly the success that Leicester enjoyed last season had a big knock-on effect for kids in the city.
