“I’m delighted that City College and Sussex County Cricket Club are partnering on such an important and exciting initiative”, said Zac Toumazi, Chief Executive of Sussex Cricket. “The Sussex Student Partnership will pave the way to provide support and meaningful opportunities for local people to flourish and progress. The relationship will not only benefit the students but will also benefit the Club in its pursuit of excellent client service. We look forward to working with City College, welcoming the students to The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground and doing all we can to make our partnership the success it deserves to be.”
