About

I am Programme Leader for the FdSc Sport Performance & Analysis programme as well as teaching on other undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. Additionally, I am currently registered on a part time PhD by Traditional Route, investigating Managerial and Organisational Change in Professional Football. I also supervise a cohort of undergraduate Independent Study students and postgraduate Masters and MRes students.

From an applied perspective I am currently coaching in football at semi-professional and national university level. I also have experience of working as an academy coach and a development centre coach in professional youth football and a casual coach in community sport organisations.
