Multi-tasking student nurse Jade boxes clever with scholarship

Not many people can put student nurse and Thai boxing champion on their CV, but for Jade Sandlan training for a caring, nurturing profession is the perfect counterpart to her success in the martial art of Muay Thai. Now the former Great Britain no.1 has plans to regain her Thai boxing crown with the help of an Edge Hill University Sports Scholarship.

Scholarship for passionate golfer James

James Rooney picked up his first golf club aged two. At nine, he scored his first hole-in-one, and he had achieved a handicap of five or less while still at school. He now represents the Lancashire Men’s 1st team, travelling extensively to compete across the UK and internationally, and his dedication to golf has been recognised with a Sports Scholarship from Edge Hill University.
