New Fitness Coach pleased to have joined Town
Shrewsbury Town’s new Fitness Coach, Marc Lindsey, is excited about the challenge of working at the League One leaders.
Marc joined the club this week from Crawley Town and will bring a wealth of knowledge to the Sports Science Department.
Lindsey has been impressed with what he has seen from his first few days in the job and is looking forward to pushing the club even further.
“It’s an exciting time to be joining the club”, admitted Marc.
“I’m looking forward to integrating with the rest of the staff that are here. Working closely with the Manager and the Assistant Manager and just trying to add a little bit more to hopefully push the club on a little bit further.
“It’s a club that are certainly turning a few heads at the minute, so to be part of what we’ve got going here is very exciting for me.”
Marc has been working in football for the last seven years and is looking to bring what he has learnt to Shrewsbury.
“I’ve come from Crawley Town where I was a Strength and Conditioning Coach”, Lindsey said.
“Previously, I’ve done some work at Peterborough United and West Bromwich Albion. I’m an undergraduate in Sports Science and I am currently doing a master’s degree as well.
“This is my seventh year working in football and I am continually looking to develop myself. I will be looking to bring the expertise that I have gathered over the last seven years to Shrewsbury and add it to the programme they’ve already got here.”
Town’s fitness has been one of their strong points so far this season and Lindsey believes he can make some small tweaks to continue the improvements.
“The club are doing a lot of good things at the minute and it shows on the pitch, so for me to come in is certainly a challenge, but it’s a challenge that I’m relishing”, said Marc.
“I’m looking forward to adding anything I can offer and hopefully make any additional improvements that I can do, so that when we are going into the back end of the season we can continually push late on in games, like we did on Tuesday night.
“The club are doing a lot of good things in terms of their testing and monitoring procedures, but I’d like to add something to the nutritional side of things. There’s a lot of good things that are going on from the physical side, so maybe I can change a few things from a nutritional point of view.”
