Eoin Doyle from Clough, Kilkenny talks about work experience in Huddersfield and time spent in Poland while managing a BA in International Business
What made you choose Waterford?
A big factor in my decision to come to Waterford was the chance to go abroad on a year placement. I went to Huddersfield town FC the year they got promoted to the Premier League so I couldn’t have picked a better year to go as I got to work in the Etihad Stadium in Manchester and I also got to work in Wembley Stadium. I loved the experience as it is something that I enjoy because I play soccer with the college.
How did you find playing soccer in the college?
Playing with the college was a really enjoyable experience, in first year we won the All-Ireland Final in Futsal and got to go over to Poland and represent Ireland for two weeks. It also helped to ease the transition from secondary to college as it helped me to make friends, most of which I am still friends with, one of the lads is currently at Hibernia FC and another friend who was a year ahead of me went to Sheffield United on placement so it really helped me settle in to college.
