Coaching graduate enjoys success in MLS

Our programme can lead graduates into a variety of roles within the sports industry.

After leaving UCLan, Ashley Wallace landed a role in Major League Soccer (MLS) as a Performance Analyst with Sporting Kansas City.

The club were impressed with his work during a placement year at Preston North End and offered him the opportunity to design and implement a full analysis system for them.

Ashley's goal whilst studying at UCLan was to become an Analyst or Elite Coach, and the placement provided the perfect platform for him to secure the position.

During his time with Sporting KC they advanced to the MLS Cup 2013 as the second-placed team in the Eastern Conference, going on to beat Real Salt Lake in the final.

Following the victory Ashley and his colleagues were invited to the White House (pictured back row, third from left).
