Brent River College students enjoyed an FA Cup semi-finals match on their doorstep, Wembley Stadium, England’s national stadium. Many of the students are avid football fans so this was an opportunity not to be missed; the Premiership champions Manchester City versus Sheffield United. It was a lovely day for the match which saw Manchester City sail through to win the match 3 nil with a hat-trick from Riyad Mahrez.
Students were happy to not have had to travel too far. Most of them had never been to a football match before and some aren’t even football fans, so this was a great experience for them which they will remember.
