Assistant Coach Jack Salmon

Brilliant assistant to the coaching staff. A non existent playing career plagued by injury, with minimal achievements to write home about in comparison to the lads. Main focus is now on all areas of fitness which mainly include Running, Cycling and Swimming. Nothing more enjoyable than getting involved with a run with the lads at training or even a few post match box to boxes with Dan Bryson! Dislikes an unorganised warmup on a match day!
