A COLLEGE has kicked out a female coach, 23, and a male academy member in his 30s after a video of them having sex on campus was leaked online.
Their X-rated activity was carried out in a room at the institution several years ago, but the woman’s iCloud account was hacked and the footage has been widely shared on porn sites, a source told the Sun Online.
Oaklands College in St Albans, Hertfordshire, said that as a result of the incident, it has terminated its contract with football academy EDSV (Every Day Stand Victorious).
Two of the academy’s coaches – who have since quit – were in the saucy footage.
An Oaklands spokesperson told the Sun Online that it canned the contract as the college has a duty to its pupils “from a safeguarding perspective”.
The academy reacted on Twitter, saying that it was “very disappointed” with the way in which Oaklands has “tried to get rid of their most successful football provision”.
EDSV Academy supporters have sledged Oaklands on social media, saying that its students and coaches have given “nothing but 100% this season”.
According to the Herts Advertiser, the video showed two of the academy’s coaches, a female, 23, and a man who plays for a football club in Herts.
The paper said it was not naming the pair, as they were “victims of a crime” because of the hacking.
Oaklands director of student experience, Sean Scully, confirmed that the college is “no longer working with the EDSV Academy in light of incidents on social media involving a director and coach of EDSV recording and engaging in a lewd act on college premises.
“We realise this is a worrying time for parents and students alike, but we would like to reassure students that we will continue to provide a football academy.”
Describing the sex tape scandal as extremely disappointing and upsetting, Scully said the college would use it as a chance to teach students “about keeping themselves safe online and the dangers of recordings on social media”.
Its replacement will be announced “by the end of April”.
A source told the Sun Online that the video was “quite explicit”.

EDSV owner Billie Highton told the Herts Ad that parents and students were in “uproar” about the contract being terminated.
He said that Herts Police are investigating the hacking, and that EDSV has accepted the pair’s resignations.
The Sun Online has contacted EDSV and the college for further comment.
