Welcome to Kim Harris, Zara Pinckerton and Hanicka Hall
We have appointed a new Sports Therapist to work with the first team this season.
Kim Harris has worked in football for some years now, and most recently at Bedford Town and Arlesey Town. Kim will look after the 1st team, but will also have a medical team with her to support the Reserves and U18s. They are Zara Pinckerton and Hanicka Hall who both study at the University of Bedford.
Andy Leese was delighted to secure the services of Kim and her team in an important area of support: "With John Burt finally retiring after years of unstinting service to the club and to me, we needed to fill this important role as quickly as we could.
"Kim is keen to get started and will give the players the support they need on match days and through the week. Treatment of injuries and rehabilitation work is key at our level , and we found last year that serious injuries can affect a squad quite markedly as we lost Laurie and Brad for long periods. I'd like to welcome Kim and her team to the club and look forward to working with them."
