In the third article in the series which looks at the work of LCFC Club Chaplain, Bruce Nadin, we ask him about his time commitments and his views on Sunday football.
How much of your time does the post of club Chaplain take up?
Excluding match days, it is very roughly up to ten hours per week in the season. Friday is my main actual day of attendance. For the first two hours of the day I will be at the stadium visiting the offices and chatting to the staff. After that I will go to the training ground where I arrive just before the players come off the pitch. I will then go to the physiotherapy room and speak with the injured players. The remainder of the day will be spent at the training ground undertaking my duties as well as basically ‘building bridges’ and making myself available to anyone who might want to chat.
In addition to this, as well as attending first team games, I also attend the home reserve and academy games as much as possible. Attendance at the academy games is something that is really appreciated by both the lads and the parents alike…..
