Saints FC Player, Wesley Hoedt, Gives our Students Insight into the World of Premier League Football

10th October 2018

Premier League footballer, Wesley Hoedt, came to our college this week to take part in a Q&A session with our sports students, courtesy of  our exclusive partnership with the Saints Foundation. He talked about his experiences in the industry and touched on many topics including the importance of nutrition, training schedules, recovery and much more!

Our Head of Sport, Tom Barge, says, “Wesley gave the students the opportunity of a lifetime and taught them solid techniques on how to reach their career and fitness goals. His clear passion around football and fitness ensured that his advice will go a long way with the students and have a positive impact on their future plans.”

Sean Dye, who is on our   level three Saints Football Coaching course, says, “It was amazing to get a professional perspective on how players prefer their training sessions to be delivered. This new knowledge is really going to help me to  better plan and develop my own coaching sessions in the future.”

We’d like to thank Wesley and the Saints Foundation for taking the time to speak to our students,  for sharing tips and giving them an insider’s view of the football industry!
