Lead Academy Analyst


Upon graduating from the University of Hull with a degree in Sports Coaching and Performance, Craig embarked on a PhD in Performance Analysis.

During this time, he learned his trade in Rugby League working with Hull Kingston Rovers and the New Zealand Kiwis in the Rugby League World Cup.

An avid football fan, Craig jumped at the chance to join the academy set-up as part-time Performance Analyst for the Under-18s.

He was then given the role of Lead Academy Analyst on a full time basis, working with the Under-9s to Under-23s, with the aim of assisting young talent on their progression to becoming professional footballers.

Craig has also recently obtained a PhD in performance analysis from the University of Hull.
