The new arrivals into Community Trust's BTEC programme in football and futsal for 2016/17 look to have quickly found their scoring touch after winning their inaugural friendly 5-3 away to Fleetwood.

Playing at the Cod Army's impressive new Poolfoot Farm training ground, the first intake of players to have confirmed to the new course - which starts formally in September - quickly took to playing in the blue and white halves in a dominant display.
Chris McGrail, head of futsal at the Community Trust, was pleased with the outing, explaining:
"It's an exciting new step to be offering 11-a-side football alongside futsal as part of the BTEC in Sport for the new academic year, and though it's more about results off the field than on it, a winning start is no bad thing.
"The players enjoyed their experience of getting to play at a professional facility and we're looking forward to giving them all plenty more chances like that once they're fully started here with us.
"Those who have shown their desire to join us early have been able to take the best advantage of chances to play and train with us since they finished their school work. Therefore, I'd urge others who are thinking of applying to the course to get an application in quickly, so that they can get a better idea of what it's all about too."
