Leigh has spent many years working in full time professional sport; with the English Institute of Sport and more recently UK Athletics.

Leigh has worked in a range of sports including Rugby League, Rugby Union and Football and he has worked at over 50 major games and training camps including the Olympic holding camp and Olympic Games, the Commonwealth Games, Taekwondo world championships in South Korea and numerous Athletics Diamond Leagues.

We are lucky to have Leigh and his team on board, he brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the role and we wish him every success.
