Students from Year 10 students are looking forward to a trip to Westminster for the FA Premier League School Enterprise Challenge final in November after success at the semi-final stage at St James Park. The students were representing Liverpool Football Club and its enterprise centre. They were set a task by the FA based around improving the Match Day experience at Anfield.
The event took place on Thursday 11th October and was judged by a panel of Enterprise experts as 10 football clubs including Liverpool, Everton, Manchester United and Manchester City presented their ideas vying for a chance to represent their clubs in the final.
Archbishop Beck’s proposal on behalf of Liverpool Football Club was chosen to advance to the final along with teams representing Manchester City and Middlesbrough. They will join Tottenham Hotspur, Norwich City and West Brom who all advanced in the first semi-final earlier in the week. The judges noted how original and ‘real’ the proposal from Archbishop Beck was as they were the only team to resist the traditional ‘PowerPoint’ presentation, instead opting to create their own website as well as a live Twitter feed to accompany this.
The Twitter feed has already gained well over 100 followers and has been supported by Ex-Liverpool player Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock, Local MP Steve Rotheram, Local Journalists, Liverpool Fanzines, The Hillsborough Family Support Group, Supporters clubs from Boston and Singapore as well as LFC fans from around the world.
The students are now one step away from being named Premier League Enterprise Challenge Winners 2012 and are excited at the prospect of delivering their presentation again as well as the chance to visit the nation’s capital.
