Football Academy start the season with match against link club.

One of the benefits of working in partnership with Colchester United Football Club is that we play regular showcase matches against their Academy teams.  The first of these showcase games took place on Tuesday 1st September 2015, when Rushcroft Football Academy was invited to play a match at the Colchester United Football Club first team training ground. 

The Year 12s had only been together for 4 training sessions prior to the match and had been working very hard on their team shape and patterns of play.  On the day we executed our team strategy with great effect and found ourselves 1 – 0 up at half time after a very competitive half.  In the second half Colchester United Football Club Academy made some changes both to their team and their tactics.  The Rushcroft boys worked really hard in the second half, however, due to a lack of match fitness the final score ended with Colchester United Football Club winning 3 – 1.  The Rushcroft students were a credit to themselves and the school.
