Gaffer on Adam Henshall

Paul Hurst talks Adam's role since he joined the club

Paul Hurst has praised the work done by Recruitment Administrator Adam Henshall since he has joined the club.

Adam has had a number of roles since joining the club over two and a half years ago and has taken on greater responsibilities since Lead Performance Analyst Michael Vernon left the club.

Adam now provides analysis on ever Town game, home and away, whilst he continues to aid Paul on the recruitment side.

Paul Hurst has been pleased with what he has seen so far, but was keen to point out that Adam would make no final decisions on the transfer front.

“He’s been very good since I’ve come in,” said Paul

“I’m not sure exactly of his job title prior to me coming in, but because of losing the analyst to Tranmere with Micky, he’s taken that job on and he’s extremely comfortable with it.

“I’ve been happy with everything he’s done for me in terms of putting footage together about the opposition before the game, but he is still helping with the recruitment.

“I’ve said from the start that I wouldn’t be happy if I thought Adam brought the players in and then I work with them, because that’s not how I like to work.

“All Adam is basically doing is if I ask, or Chris asks, for reports on players then he arranges all the scouting and goes to games himself.

“He will speak to a lot of clubs and agents. It’s not that I don’t do stuff like that as well, but that’s a big help on my side and it allows us to have options available to us.

“It’s about trying to really network about what’s available to us and what’s out there, as well as then following up on names that we are interested in or have maybe had thrown at us that we might be interested in.

“He does a very good job and he’s very hardworking. I’m surprised he hasn’t got square eyes with the amount of time he spends in front of screens.

“If there’s anyone who thinks he shouldn’t be in a job or that he has signed some bad players then I would say that it wasn’t on him anyway and moving forward it certainly isn’t.”
