sports president



Edd Keeler


I love Stirling because….It has given me some of my best moments, taught me about myself, and been the best four years of my life so far! It is also its the most stunning campus in the UK).

Favourite student moment…The week after the 2016-17 championship with the American Football team I was sat on the hill behind the acommodation, the sun was out and I just couldn't imagine everything the next three years were going to bring but I knew they would be something special. I wasn't wrong.

My manifesto summed up in three words… Sport for All.

One month into #Round2 of Sports President and there’s already quite a bit to report… We ended a fantastic year of Stirling Sport with a very impressive 17th in the BUCS League Table – an incredible ten places above our final position last year! We had a number of notable achievements from our teams over the 2015-16 season, but special mentions would have to go to the Golf Team and the Women’s Tennis Team – both of whom were BUCS Champions!

In the second week of June, Stirling hosted the annual Scottish Student Sport (SSS) Conference, which was a huge success! It was a great few days where I was able to meet the new intake of Sports Presidents from across the country (and say a sad goodbye to the old team) and hear from a number of fantastic speakers and sports industry professionals. I learnt a lot and will hopefully be able to apply it to the Sports Union over the coming year here at Stirling. Another highlight was being elected as the Chair of the Elected Students (Sports Presidents) in Scotland, meaning I get to represent not only Stirling this year, but Scottish Student Sport at national BUCS meetings.

Finally, (after what feels like eight years!) Jacqui, Jason and I were able to confirm all training times for all clubs this year – not an easy or fun job, I promise! These will be sent out to all clubs over the next week so you can all prepare for the coming year. I’m heading off to BUCS Conference next week so will report back on how that goes in the next blog…
