William and Kate this afternoon officially opened the England training centre.

Opening the centre, William and Kate were given a tour before joining the England squad and manager Roy Hodgson on a training pitch. The royal couple chatted to players including Steven Gerrard and Ashley Cole.

Afterwards, the Duke of Cambridge, who is the FA’s president and a keen Aston Villa fan, made a speech in which he said he felt the same sense of pride and excitement at seeing the new facilities as he had when he visited the Olympic Park in London earlier in the year.

He added: “It will be far more than just a world class training facility for our future world-beating national team. It is more than just a university from which thousands of highly qualified coaches will graduate. It is also a magnificent example of the sort of social initiative that brings opportunity and purpose to wider British life.” read more
