AFC Youth Ambassadors
At the beginning of October, the AFC Youth Ambassadors project was launched. Congratulations to the young Northfield Academy people who were an absolute credit to themselves, their families, their community, and their school. They participated in a Q&A with first team players, they asked brilliant questions about aspirations and futures, and the Q&A was expertly hosted by a Northfield Academy’s pupil.
