I would recommend LMC as a fantastic place to study sport and continue your development and interests in football. Your studies link to your football development as much as possible, helping you gain the knowledge, skills and experiences to pursue a career in sport in the future.

As of May 2022, Chris Squirrel became a Lecturer in Sport & Lead Football Coach at LMC where he teaches on all Sports programmes and leads on the LMC Football Academy, with the aim to prepare a competitive team for the league championship.

Chris started his LMC journey as a student before progressing in his career and specialising in Sports Coaching, Science, Strength & Conditioning as a First Team Fitness & Rehabilitation Coach at Morecambe Football Club.

Since becoming a member of staff at LMC, Chris is developing the use of technology within the courses currently offered in Sport, so that learners can gain real-life experience within their studies.

Access to high-quality facilities and equipment was a contributing factor in Chris' decision to be a part of the College Community and to support teaching and coaching across the department.

Chris is proud of the exposure to Morecambe Football Club which LMC's Football Academy students have access to on campus, alongside the extra opportunities for learners to enjoy and perform in new environments, including arranging football training camps and fixtures overseas in Alicante.

The additional activities LMC offer to students are superb and provides extra opportunities to test and enjoy new environments. The variety of modules that I can teach based on my background in professional sport enables me to support multiple areas of courses at LMC.

When asked what advice he'd give to someone applying for a course in Sport, Chris said:
