Former HNC student Ellie Dobson has been selected to represent Great Britain in the World University Football Cup. The competition will be hosted in China over a 3 week period in August. Ellie, a former A-Level PE student and Women’s Football Academy captain, studied at HNC between 2011-2013. Upon completing her A levels with flying colours, she progressed to Northumbria University, to study a BSc in Sports Science and is currently studying a Masters in Psychology.

Selection for Team GB was highly competitive as you would expect. Ellie was selected from hundreds of footballers making it into a short list of 60 of the best players in the country, currently in HE. Those 60 spent a full day at Warwick University to gain a place in the 24 player squad. Ellie has claimed a spot as a central midfielder for Team GB and everyone at Huddersfield New College wishes her the very best for the competition.

Ellie - we will be rooting for you!
