In a statement, the NPLFA said: “The NPL Football Academy would like to thank all our students who have shown exceptional effort, commitment and adaptability to continue with their academic studies away from their usual classroom surroundings.

“Also a huge thanks to our tutors and all the parents/guardians who have gone above and beyond to support the students in what has been a difficult and testing week.
