Brooksby Melton College student, Cole Wildin, has had the honour of being selected to play for the Antigua and Barbuda Under 20 team at a tournament in Miami.
So far, the team have excelled in both of their games, securing a 6-1 win against St. Martin and a 1-0 win against Belize.
Cole studies Level 3 Sport at BMC, where he benefits from learning in state-of-the-art Sport facilities at the Brooksby Campus. These multi-million pound facilities include a full-sized 3G all-weather pitch, strength and conditioning gym, and a sports science lab featuring a GPS tracking system, force platforms and VO2 max testing equipment.
Andy Graham, Sport Lecturer at BMC, said ‘This is such a fantastic achievement for Cole and we are proud to be supporting him through the start of his football career. He is a talented footballer and an excellent academic. Cole initially began his studies as part of the BMC Football Academy and, after having a successful season with them, is now continuing onto the Mansfield Town Academy programme here at BMC.’
BMC offers a range of Sport and Sport Science courses, from Level 2 through to Degree level. In addition, the college works in partnership with Mansfield Town FC and Leicester Tigers to provide sports academies, which allow talented young athletes to study a nationally recognised qualification in Sport whilst training for up to 10 hours per week with professional coaches and competing at an elite level.
