    502 Bad Gateway


    502 Bad Gateway

        Staff     Alumni

    Dayne, from Uttoxeter, is currently on placement with Leicester Tigers Rugby Club.

    When I took a year out after I left school, I worked with the Annandale & Eskdale Active Schools & Community Sport team as a coach. I also gained regular work in a council-run sports centre. During that year, I really grew professionally through my coaching, and I had an exceptional team to support me. Upon the coaching, I managed to gain the Dumfries & Galloway Young Coach of the Year Award, and Eskdale Young Citizen of the Year Award, and I believe I was also shortlisted for the Sport Scotland Young Coach of the Year Award – though unsuccessful.”

    “Studying at university has enabled me to find my personal aptitude, or at least provide me the skills to do so, and subsequently, I have been able to massively improve my capacity to learn and apply myself. Also, it has obviously given me the chance to pursue a placement opportunity with my childhood sport & club, Leicester Tigers. I would probably have not had that opportunity having gone elsewhere as it has been driven by the influence of lecturers and tutors.”
