Town appoint Michael Rawson
Town's first team squad will report back for pre-season training this week - and a new man is on board to ensure they are at peak physical fitness.
Michael Rawson has joined the Club as Head of Strength and Conditioning following the resignation of Tom Little during the latter part of the season.
Rawson joins Town having spent the last six years working at Bolton Wanderers, where for the last three seasons he held the role of First Team Strength and Conditioning Coach.
At Town, he will be responsible for all aspects of the day-to-day first team squad's physical condition and strength and will also work with Town’s Development Squad. The former University of Leeds student will also prepare and perform the Club’s Prehabilitation programme (designed to prevent sporting injuries) and will work with players during the latter stages of their rehabilitation from injury.
Huddersfield Town Manager Mark Robins welcomed the appointment:
“It was vital that we brought somebody in ahead of pre-season training. Pre-season is a very important stage of the season and it was imperative that we had someone in ready to work with the players from the get-go. After meeting with Michael, I knew that he had the right qualities for us as a group and as a Club and that he would do well with the players.
"He brings a whole range of qualities to the table; he does excellent strength and conditioning work as well as injury prevention, rehabilitation - the whole package really.
“I look forward to working with Michael over the coming weeks and months.”
