The Millwall Community Trust Extend Partnership
Millwall have extend there partnership with the SCL group. The Two Organisations Strive To Empower The Next Generation Through A Unique Football And Education Scholarship.
The two-year programme, which is designed for 16-18 year-old male and females, gives students the opportunity to complete a range of qualifications. As well as the chance to showcase their footballing talent under the guidance of UEFA licensed coaches.
Set to embark on their fifth academic year together, SCL and the Lions have helped students realise their potential, including 19-year-old striker Ella Rutherford who has gone on to represent England Under-19s. More recently, Malik Solebo has played a part in Cray Wanderers’ 2018/19 Bostik South East title-winning season, while goalkeeper Charlie Petrucci has earned himself a university scholarship after graduating from the programme this summer.
Developing their footballing skills coupled with enhancing their cultural experience in London, the boys embarked on a trip to the 02 Academy as well as enjoying a stadium tour of The Den before walking out onto the pitch ahead of the Lions’ Championship match against Leeds United.
This lay the foundations for a more permanent link, with six of the touring party impressing Millwall chiefs to secure a place on the full-time education and football development programme. Providing youngsters from Lanzarote with the opportunity to learn English and maths from highly qualified SCL educators, the link is an exciting development for both SCL and MCT to take their partnership to the next level.
