Graduated from Edge Hill University in 2006 with a 2.1 in Sport and Exercise Science. Went on to complete my PGCE in Physical Education at Liverpool John Moores University in 2010. In the summer of 2005 I worked in a summer camp in the USA. I somehow managed to get to a semi professional standard of football where I represented Hyde FC. I am currently a lecturer with SCL delivering Btec sport qualifications to the FCUM academy players.
There will be a subsidised cost for purchasing training kit at the start of the season. Further details about this will be provided upon the player’s acceptance into The Football Academy.
