Video Testimonial – Joe Cardle

Testimonial from Dave Gray (Hibernian FC Captain)

“The course has really opened my eyes to the business side of running a football club and the many challenges clubs face to be successful and not just on a Saturday. Having been involved in football full-time since leaving school, I was worried about going on the course at Napier University. But After meeting Stevie the tutor and the rest of the guys they quickly made me feel comfortable and at ease. Special thank you to the PFA for all their hard work and effort that went into organizing the course.”
