Director at The Name of The Game Ltd
It was great to get some of the guys together again after what is almost 20 years for most of us. We all loved our time at TASC and football was a big part of that. Thanks to Brett and everyone at the University for their support and warm welcome; it was noticed and much appreciated.
Since graduating from Leeds Trinity Angus has forged a very successful career in sport, including working for The Football League Trust as Business Development Manager. In July 2015 he started his own company, The Name of The Game which works with a number of elite sports clubs.
Returning to campus
Angus has maintained close links with the University since graduating and regularly returns to campus. In May 2017 he organised an 11-a-side football reunion match which saw a lot of alumni returning to campus 20 years since graduating.
Speaking after the game Angus said “It was great to get some of the guys together again after what is almost 20 years for most of us. We all loved our time at TASC and football was a big part of that. Thanks to Brett and everyone at the University for their support and warm welcome; it was noticed and much appreciated.”
Angus also featured in the Faces of Leeds Trinity photographic exhibition and shared details about his business.
Can you tell us a bit about your current role?
I work with a number of sporting charities helping them to develop new partnerships and find funding to deliver their work. Most of these organisations are involved with an increasingly diverse range of activities that can be broadly summarised around the themes of sports participation, social inclusion, community cohesion, health and education. Current clients include the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation, the School of Hard Knocks, Reading FC, Derby County FC, Livingston FC, Clyde FC, Bradford City FC, Sheffield United FC , Barnsley FC, Hull City FC, Blackpool FC and Scunthorpe United FC.
I also manage an Erasmus+ project for The Football League Trust and have recently taken on the role of CEO of The Asian Sports Foundation in addition to the above.
