Recently, the children in year 6 had the chance to meet and interview Josh Kirk, the first team performance analyst for Sheffield United.
During the meeting, the children found out more about his day-to-day role. They discovered that it is his job to provide data and analysis on the teams that Sheffield United are due to play soon. Once he has researched this information, he has to present it to the first-team manager.
After the meeeting, Dawson said, “ I enjoyed learning about a future career path in sport that wasn’t just playing the game.” Seth added, “I was able to recognise the importance of gaining relevant experience, working well in a team and possessing good communication skills in a role like this.”
