Hear about the experience…

Ultimately getting back into football was my main target, as I used to play a lot, but in a friendly and not too competitive environment. This program has been a great way for me to meet new people whilst enjoying a decent game of football at the same time.

This role has been brilliant for me! I have gained better communication, management and organisation skills from simply organising a kick about. You get quite in to the whole thing.  

My favourite session organising was probably my most challenging. when I was just starting off with my first session of the program. I hoped for the slight chance that it might be decent weather, to encourage players to turn up. But as feared, it absolutely chucked it down (typical British weather as they say!). However, with a bit of encouragement, I still got enough people down to play and this game was arguably the most enjoyable of the year (maybe not the best in quality).  

If you’re even half thinking about being a leader, get down and talk to the sports team about it. As well as getting to use university facilities for free, It’s the perfect way to meet new people from different courses, socialise and maybe learn a thing or two about yourself along the way.
