After achieving a First Class Honours Degree he is currently partaking a PGCE in Further Education.
His research interests include community football programmes and the impact they have on people with mental health problems. He is currently evaluating the effectiveness of a football league club’s mental health initiative, Burton Albion Community Trust.
