This season, the King’s College 1st football team will be representing Exeter City Football Club in the newly created English Football League Community and Education Football Alliance League.

Ahead of their first fixture at Reading FC, Head of the Football in the ECFC Community Programme, Jamie Vittles, and former League Two professional football for the Grecians and Forest Green Rovers, Ben Watson, spent time with the team.

The two representatives took part in a question and answer session with the boys, giving them a valuable insight into how they got into playing football for a living. The players also talked about life as a full time professional and of how they coped with life after the game.

Director of Football, Chris Heayns, said: “To have the two former players spend time with the team and talk about their experiences was an eye opener. It made them realise just how hard it is to become involved and what life is like as a professional sportsman.”

“To be able to represent Exeter City and play in their colours on a regular basis against the likes of Bristol City, Newport County and Swindon is a wonderful opportunity for the team and everybody is hugely excited about it.”

He added: “This football program is unique amongst independent schools and is part of a nationwide league with school-based teams linked to professional football clubs, Premier League included.”

King's College Open Day

Our next Open Day will be taking place on Saturday 5 October 2019 at 10.00am.

Open Days are an ideal way of looking around a school to see if you think this might be the one for you and your child. Our pupils play a huge part in the success of these days and thoroughly enjoy showing prospective families around their school.
