Paul McGuinness took a full squad to Leicestershire to help unveil a new boardroom named in the honour of former tutor and coach Mike Holliday, who passed away in 2008, and learn more about the facilities at the campus.
University staff outlined the work that goes on in cricket, swimming, gymnastics, athletics and other sports during an extensive tour of the impressive site, which includes the hi-tec Powerbase gym.
An Under-17 side lost 4-2 to Derby County before an Academy XI triumphed 6-2 against Loughborough University at the 3,500-capacity stadium.
