Etone Football Education Academy take the League Title

This week saw Etone Football Education Academy in partnership with West Bromwich Albion take the EFL title for the first time since their launch, having come runners up on the previous couple of seasons it was the Academies year to clinch the title and they did so in style losing only two games and achieving a +72 goal difference which is a fantastic achievement. As the academy has developed over the past few seasons the teams have won several different cup competitions and AOC league titles but this seasons achievement is the biggest yet as they have beaten established academies from Aston Villa, Wolves and Nottingham Forrest to name a few in the race to the title. Academy Director Mr Petch said ‘the cohort of lads involved have been brilliant, they work so hard and their dedication has been second to none which is both a credit to themselves as well as the academy, two special mentions have to go to the Academy captain Callum Brown who leads by example on a daily basis and Josh Atkins who was the leagues top scorer with 49 goals’

Not only do the team receive the League title which will be a nice addition to the Etone Football Academy trophy cabinet but they will also receive their award during the EFL Championship playoff final at Wembley Stadium on Sunday 26th May, this will be a fantastic experience for the lads and a nice way to complete another very successful season. We’re hoping to spot a few of them on TV.

Mr Smith head of Etone college stated ‘The success of the academy is truly astounding. Whilst we are proud of all our students and pupils, the ethos of the academy is to provide an opportunity for those who might otherwise move on from education. In the past few years the academy has really developed a strong reputation in the area, both for the quality of the football played and the outcomes of our students results. The win is of course the cherry on top of the cake.”

If any current year 11 pupils are still undecided on their steps and are interested in the Academy further details and expression of interest can be found at with the next taster session taking place on Tuesday 28th May.
