We are excited to announce that we have partnered with the Liverpool FC to become the First Victorian Regional LFC International Academy high-performance School.
We were joined by some sporting legends including former Socceroo, Matt Spiranovic, former Geelongs Cats Cameron Ling, Cameron Mooney and David Wojcinski as well as City of Greater Geelong Mayor, Trent Sullivan, for the launch yesterday.
Spiranovic spoke of his time as a student at St Joseph’s. “As a past student and football representative of St Joseph’s College it makes me very proud and excited to learn of the new football partnership with Liverpool FC. Throughout my college days St Joseph’s was able to provide me with great support and balance in both my curriculum activities and sporting endeavours. The new partnership will only improve and elevate this already fantastic College to greater heights. I look forward to what the future holds and can’t wait to see more future Socceroos come through the College.”
City of Greater Geelong Mayor, Trent Sullivan, welcomed the arrival of Liverpool Football Club’s International Academy to the region. “The Liverpool Football Club is one of the most well-known and highly regarded sporting clubs in the world,” Mayor Sullivan said. “It is synonymous with high performance, the development of talent and the pursuit of success, and I applaud St Joseph’s College for its work in securing this substantial partnership.”
On Thursday 20 April at our Edmund Rice Campus there will be a FREE taster clinic where participants can train under LFC Academy Coaches. All genders and abilities are welcome.
