Alumni: Zaheer Shah
BA (Hons) Football Studies graduate Zaheer Shah has secured employment with not one, but two professional clubs as he seeks to develop his career in the game.
Zaheer, who graduated in 2012 has taken up post as coach at Watford FC and performance analyst at Brentford FC.
At Brentford, he joins Luke Lazenby, another Solent BA (Hons) Football Studies graduate.
Discussing the value of his degree in preparing him for his roles, Zaheer commented:
“Studying Football Studies at Solent University prepared me well for the challenges that I have had to overcome during my time with Watford FC and Brentford FC. The lecturers demand high standards and a solid work ethic. I would recommend the course to anyone who has a willingness to learn about the sport in-depth and network with industry professionals who will challenge you in preparation for life post-university.”
