A leading industry magazine has named Myerscough College as one of the most influential bodies in the sportsturf industry.


The Turf Business Top Turf Influencer Award recognises the industry’s most influential figures who possess an outstanding level of knowledge, experience and skillset within their specific field of expertise. Myerscough has been named 8th on the list.

A prestigious shortlist was made up of individuals who create some of the best playing surfaces in the world of professional football, cricket, golf, rugby league and tennis, and organisations who make a real difference in supporting the development of the sportsturf sector in general.

A number of other finalists are Myerscough alumni, including Neil Stubley, Head of Courts and Horticulture at the All England Lawn Tennis Club, and winner Paul Burgess, Director of Grounds and Environment at Real Madrid.

A spokesperson for Turf Business said: ‘’The Top Turf Influencer Award is an acclaimed accolade that recognises the industry’s most influential people and organisations. With voting made by industry professionals, the award acknowledges influencers who possess an outstanding level of knowledge, experience and skillset within their specific field of expertise.’’

Myerscough offers a wide range of sportsturf study opportunities, both in full time programmes at further and higher education level, and also through work-based apprenticeships, for learners both from the UK and overseas.

Learners go on to find employment at all levels, from assistant groundspersons and greenkeepers, to managers of international sports facilities such as Premier League Football Clubs and the major elite Golf Courses.

Myerscough College enjoys a fantastic reputation across the UK and Europe as one of the leading providers of sportsturf education. Ex-students from the programmes can be found at some of the top sporting venues across the country and beyond.
