Bournemouth defender Jack Stacey revealed how he balanced tactics with textbooks – while studying for a degree alongside his playing career. The 24-year-old, who has made 13 appearances for Cherries since signing from Luton last summer, is four years into a business and economics degree with The Open University. He admitted the current suspension of the Premier League has allowed him to fly through his studies.
Jack Stacey said: “It’s something I’ve always been interested in and I have done it alongside football now for the past four years. It’s a six-year degree. With the spare time that I’ve had, it’s allowed me to catch up on my assignments and I am flying through that at the moment. I usually do an hour after training each day once I get back but there have obviously been other times. I started then and in the four years my football career’s in a slightly different place to where it was but I’ve kept up with it and I am really enjoying it. It takes my mind off football and I’d recommend it to players that would be interested in something like that.”
