Had an interesting meeting with Histon FC yesterday. Anglia Ruskin University have agreed to provide scientific support to the team. The scientific support will include physiological testing and performance analysis. We may also provide some support in terms of the development of their daily training environment (DTE) and some sort of lifestyle management/mentoring for athletes.
This is an interesting opportunity that I am sure will help to develop our students who will help with the testing and performance analysis as internships.
I always find meeting football clubs very interesting. They have a very different philosophy to Olympic sports and I find it very hard to understand their mentality sometimes. I think working with Histon FC may help develop my understanding a bit more.
