“I would have no hesitation in offering Dan a place in our organisation, should the opportunity arise.”

Darren Bentley (
Media Manager

“Dan is a regular contributor to our matchday programme. He can be relied on to provide interesting, well-researched features, always meeting any deadlines set. Dan is a valued member of our editorial team and I would have no hesitation in recommending him for a placement.”

Nick Johnson (
Head of Media & Communications
Chesterfield Football Club

“From the beginning Dan proved himself to be capable, professional and able to cope with everything that was going on around him. He quickly formed relationships with Chesterfield management which led to him conducting interviews which he prepared, conducted and transcribed.

“Dan has been a credit to himself whilst he has been with me. He is punctual, capable, and able to get on with everybody from the CEO of the club to the man who collects tickets.

“His maturity, application and enthusiasm mark him out from most other students.”
