Success Stories

Here at Loughborough Foxes we have been fortunate enough to have some amazing players and support staff. Here are just a few examples of people that have benefitted from their time at Foxes and now work full-time in football

“Having been part of Loughborough Foxes for over 10 years, the club has had a huge impact on my personal development. Upon breaking into the first team, I was asked to become part of the club’s committee as Player Representative where I was responsible for collecting feedback and representing players within club meetings.

Since then, I have become Club Secretary, being given these opportunities has improved my confidence to step out my comfort zone and develop both sporting and professional competencies on and off the pitch. By utilising my experiences at Loughborough Foxes, upon completion of my Masters Degree, I was able to secure full time employment working within football at Birmingham City.

I am extremely grateful to be a part of this club, which has significantly influenced who I am as an individual today as well as my ability to pursue a career working within sport.”

“I played for foxes for 3 seasons, from the minute I arrived I felt something different about foxes. Everyone will say it. It was different because we were a family, foxes went way beyond the pitch. We had great footballers in the squad both technical and athletic along with great leaders on and off the pitch and so the mixture of professionalism and family was a great combination for me being a student-athlete at university. 

The coaching staff we had were some of the best I’ve ever had and each one brought their own part to the club. the knowledge and support I received from all of them, not only about football but also in life I will remember for the rest of my career and always be grateful for this. Foxes let me enjoy football again, got me to where I am today and will help me beyond this point also.”
