Football captain's trip of a lifetime

A team captain from the University of Wolverhampton scored a trip of a lifetime to go behind the scenes at an international football stadium.

Student Lowri Walker was one of a select group of leading footballers from women’s football clubs at 72 UK universities who joined a programme of events, tours and training.

She said: "It was a networking event about leadership, mixing business leadership roles and sporting leadership and bringing the two together. 

"It's really made me think about my influence on other people and how I can help other people to want to strive to be better in their chosen sport."

The programme, organised by Santander Universities, was designed to help build critical thinking and management skills for female talent, both through sporting and wider leadership activity.
