Two sports students at Buxton and Leek College are sharing their love of the beautiful game by working with the English Colleges’ Football Association to drive up participation in the sport.

George Mycock, 19, of Leek, and Luke Stow, 16, of Buxton, have been appointed Further Education Football Activators (FEFAs) to support the growth of football among teenagers. The pair have won £600 worth of funding to attract more players into the game at both Buxton and Leek campuses.

They both study sports development, coaching and fitness.
