2017 Sports Ball Intern of the Year Winner - Congratulations to Arran Parmar (Team Northumbria Sport Science Intern)

A huge congratulations to Arran Parmar for winning this award. Arran has been involved in the Student Development Programme throughout his time at Northumbria progressing from volunteer to intern in a variety of roles. This year he took on a new challenge of a brand new role as the Team Northumbria Sport Science Intern and he has certainly set the highest standards for this role for future interns! Arran has been a key member of the Strength and Conditioning Team and has provided support to many of our Team Northumbria athletes and teams. He has taken the lead on CPD sessions for his team and shared his skills, knowledge and research findings to drive sucess within the support services department. The toolkit he has created for the department will be a lasting legacy Arran can be proud of that will continue to help Team Northumbria athletes achieve for the years to come.
