Maidenhead United Academy players selected for the England Colleges National men’s team.

Following extensive trials held across the country two Maidenhead United Football Academy players have been selected for the England Colleges National men’s team.

Right-back Taro Chitepo and goalkeeper Fred Chapman saw off extensive competition at the trials to earn their selection and will now attend a two-day camp at St George’s Park – the home of English football.

They are both studying a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sports Studies at BCA (Berkshire College of Agriculture).

First team coach and academy manager and head of youth development at Maidenhead United, Aaron O’Brien, said: “Fred and Taro are two talented footballers who have had a great start to the season and deserve every success.”

When asked about the experience, Fred explained: “It was an amazing opportunity to attend the England College Trials and I am ecstatic to be accepted into the squad for the 2019/20 season. It’s such an honour to be representing my college and my country.”

BCA runs a football academy in partnership with Maidenhead United, which started in 2015. It offers young footballers the chance to combine high level football training with full-time study. BCA provides further and higher education for approximately 1,500 full-time students.
