The Manchester Storm are delighted to announce an extension of our partnership with the University Of Salford after a very successful first year working together.

The University provided MBA packages last season to Storm players Paul Phillips, Mark Heatley and Mario Trabucco.

Storm General Manager, Neil Russell, had the following to say about the partnership:

“I made it clear from day one here with the Storm that securing a University partnership was high on my list of things to achieve, to help our hockey club. To see that relationship blossom like it has over the past 12 months has been great. The 3 MBA players from last season all thoroughly enjoyed their experience combining professional hockey with education and the staff at Salford Uni could not have been better to deal with. People like Prof Spicer, Jonathan Lord, Julie Kelly, Pamela Cairns & Adele Jones to name but a few, have been simply brilliant and have ensured not just the awareness of the partnership has been strong, but also their assistance in guiding the players through the programme has been great too.”

Moving ahead into our second year as a partnership, we are delighted to announce that we will have 5 educational packages available to us for Storm players, and again General Manager, Neil Russell, was delighted with this news;

“The growth of educational packages for next season is awesome news. The word has spread quickly amongst the hockey world of how superb the MBA programme is with Salford Uni, but also how great a city Manchester is to live in. I know Ryan has been blown away with the amount of players wanting to come to the Manchester Storm ahead of next season, which is testament to what we have done here the past two years, the strong reputation we have garnered in that time, but also the excitement generated with some high profile signings that Ryan has managed to capture. These factors all combined allows Ryan many options in what players he gives the prestigious MBA’s too, ahead of next season. We’re delighted that Dane Byers, Mike Clemente and Luke Moffat have so far taken up the MBA offer, we are sure that all these players will represent the Storm with aplomb both on the ice and in the classroom.”

Coach Ryan Finnerty was equally as pleased with the MBA programme growth:

It’s huge for me as a coach to have these programmes available, it opens so many doors to players we possibly couldn’t attain otherwise. Any player that takes up the MBA programme is fully aware that it’s hockey first and foremost, that’s their primary job here, but having heard what I have about the amazing staff at Salford Uni, I know the players will be very well supported throughout their studies and will be able to combine both roles easily.”

Professor David Spicer, Dean of Salford University Business School, had the following to say about the ongoing partnership:

“Salford Business School are delighted to be working with Manchester Storm. Our first group of player students are now moving to complete their final projects and will be graduating later this year and the School is extremely grateful for the contribution they continue to make throughout their studies. We look forward to greeting a new group of students this autumn and to strengthening and deepening our partnership with Storm in what we are sure will be another great year for the club.”
