Chris Kongo delivers inspiring session to Millwall students

Professional boxer and Millwall fan, Chris Kongo, recently visited The Lions Centre to speak to and coach the Trust's students.


Chris, who was recently appointed as an ambassador for the Millwall Community Trust, has continued to be a positive and active member for the Trust and was once again helping inspire students part of the AP Academy Programme.

Millwall AP Academy Programme is a part-time alternative education provision delivered by the Trust and acts as a precursor to our post-16 football academy programme. The AP Academy provides Key stage 4 and Year 9 students opportunities to study towards a BTEC Sport qualification, Employability and industry specific qualifications, whilst partaking in practical, sport-related activities and learning.

Sean Daly, MCT CEO, said: "It was great to have Chris back at MCT doing what he does best. The kids really like him and listen to what he has to say, and it shows why it was perfect to have him as the new MCT ambassador.

"We look forward to putting on more sessions like this one for the kids."

When asked about the session, one student said: "I really enjoyed the Chris Kongo session. It taught me a lot about his career, his pathway of steering off the roads, and wanting to pursue his career."

"I hope to see him again sometime soon, he's a very inspiring person." another student added.
