James Lake, Activity Support Manager
I joined Football in the Community in January 2004 after completing my Business, Leisure and Sports Education degree at Nottingham Trent University.
Before joining, I had worked with the scheme during a three-month work placement as part of my University course. I attended Alsager School in Cheshire, before moving to Nottingham. It was at school that I last played football – in 6th form. My job involves co-ordinating our projects, in terms of organising staffing, facilities etc.
It’s a rewarding environment to work in and it’s always reassuring to hear and receive positive feedback about the work the scheme delivers across Nottingham. Although I no longer play football, I’m still a keen supporter of Crewe Alexandra.
