FdSc Sport Coaching
Andrew captained the College’s degree football team to its most successful season on record, winning Tier Three of the BUCS (British University and Colleges) League to secure promotion.
It means Bishop Burton will compete at its highest ever level of football against some of the biggest educational institutions in the country.
Top scorer Andrew ended the season being named ‘Sports Personality of the Year’ at the annual Bishop Burton College Sports Awards and says success on the playing field, along with the skills he has developed on his degree, have set him up perfectly for a career in the industry he loves.
“It has been brilliant,” he said. “I’ve learned about coaching young children, including going into local primary schools and doing sessions with them. It was challenging but a really good experience.
“The team ethic was a big part of us securing promotion and I think sport here at Bishop Burton is among the best in the country. The facilities are outstanding – better than some Premier League clubs – and the coaching is top notch.
“I’m now looking at doing my football coaching badges. I’ve already got my level two and I’m going to do my UEFA B next year. I would like to teach secondary school children eventually.”
