The Wembley Stallions have recruited several students from UCFB Wembley to help out with the running of the club.
The students will help with the organising of all events and match days, working on the camera’s, as well as more behind the scenes operations such as marketing, finance and social media aspects.
Volunteer Samantha Read said that working for the Stallions allows her to learn practically, and put theory into action. “I can also use my past experience and apply them to the job role.”
Students were interacted with at the universities freshers fair, which not only looked for students to help with the running of the club but also playing for the club.
Several students attended the trial day with a selection of them helping out with the running and filming of the event, and many also taking part.
Kerry Fothergill who is also a volunteer for the Stallions says that working with the club gains her real experience and she wants to be part of the team and help them develop.
With the Wembley Stallions looking to push fan experience at games and make the game more of a spectacle sport, the link up with students from UCFB Wembley is highly beneficial for both parties.
The club gain extra help in the running of events and bring in fresh new ideas as well as expanding the size of the family, while the students gain working experience from their time.
