Quote from Martin: Hi, I'm Martin Harrison and I'm the Head of Football here at the University of Wolverhampton. I have spent the last 12 months understanding University life and can honestly say it has been a 'eye opening' experience. That said, the last 12 months have given me an insight into how the University wishes to progress its sports programme and in particular, professionalise its football programme, to which I believe I can play a huge part in. I have thoroughly enjoyed the past 12 months and feel we have made huge steps on our journey already. I cannot wait to start the up and coming pre-season and get the ball rolling for the next BUCS season. I look forward to meeting and coaching new and existing students. If you see me around, please come and come and say Hi!
