A student at East Norfolk Sixth Form College has been awarded a full football scholarship to Harlow University in New York following a successful season and achieving the manager’s player award at the college’s recent Sport Award Evening.

Charlie Branch, who studies the BTEC National in Sport, cannot wait to follow in the footsteps of former students Adam Sewell and Laura Thacker who are already out there on football scholarships.

Charlie said: “This is a fantastic opportunity and it hasn’t really sunk in yet but it’s a great way to finish two enjoyable years at East Norfolk.

“I would like to thank everyone at the college particularly the PE department who have helped me a great deal with my football and my studies.”
