The Football Academy has four Ambassadors, two of whom are ex-Rushcroft students:
Curtis Davies with sixth form students
Curtis Davies – Hull City (previously at West Bromwich Albion, Aston Villa, and Birmingham City)
Lee Butcher – formerly with Arsenal, Spurs, Leyton Orient and Welling United. Welling United player of the season 2013-14.
Both of these Ambassadors were taught by the Academy's Director of Football and regularly visit the Football Academy players.
We are now also delighted and privileged to include our 2 new Ambassadors, Tom Lapslie and Jack Curtis, first team squad players at Colchester United Football Club, both of whom were coached by our Academy's Director of Football Mr Ashworth when they represented their district football team.
