Can anyone help on a work placement?
We have been asked by Pam Sherratt a former Myerscough lecturer, who now resides at Ohio State University, if we can find a four month work placement for one of her students. He would be available from 1st June to the end of September and would prefer a stadium/professional club venue. Brett is nearing completion of his BSc at Ohio State University
