Alumnus back on campus with Celtic FC

Reigning Scottish Premier League champions Celtic Football Club have been welcomed on campus as part of their pre-season preparations.

Loughborough alumnus Jack Nayler (Sport and Exercise Science, 2010) is currently Head of Sports Science at the club and was blown away by the facilities on offer. He said:

“The quality of the pitches has been outstanding which is such an important part of football training and all the players have commented on how good they are. The gym and facilities at Holywell have been fantastic and has everything we need to prep the boys for training.”

Jack also touched upon his journey since leaving Loughborough, which has included spells at Chelsea, Paris St Germain, and Real Madrid, and the part his degree has played in his career so far:

“I knew I wanted to come here and study Sport and Exercise Science because of the reputation the school has.

“Building on from that I had the opportunity to be on placement at Chelsea for a year – between the second and third year of my degree - and that’s what gave me the job once I graduated and has been the catalyst for everything else that has happened throughout my career.”
