Dr Chris Platts BSc, MSc, PhD

Senior Lecturer


I completed a PhD in Sociology of Sport and Exercise, which examined the education and welfare provisions for young footballers undertaking a scholarship in professional football academies and centres of excellence.The study included interviews with 303 players at 21 professional football clubs across England and Wales. 

My research interests extend to the implications of working as an elite athlete and I am currently researching how mental health is managed by those who have careers in professional football.
