RAF Recruitment is proud to be sponsoring Colchester United FC Under 18s for the 16/17 season. Recently staff from the RAF Careers Office in Norwich visited Florence Park to meet the squad and coaching staff.
Academy Manager Jon de Souza said “We are delighted and thankful for the RAF to be sponsoring us for the coming season. We are fully committed and passionate about developing young players at Colchester United, and I am extremely grateful that the RAF is supporting our objectives.”
Coordinator Cpl Dan Lyra said “Like Colchester’s Youth Academy, the RAF nurtures the best talent by developing the qualities of teamwork, leadership and communication and instilling a hardworking ethic at all levels. I am proud to have organised a deal with a Football Club that instils the same qualities and I wish them every success for this season and beyond.”
The RAF has elite Men's, Ladies’ and Development (Under 23) teams that compete in the Inter-Services against the Army and Royal Navy, as well as national competitions, overseas tours and friendly fixtures. Football participation at all levels is also promoted with Inter-Region and RAF Cup competitions, Station and civilian football leagues.
