Carlisle United Looking for New Strength and Conditioning Coach

By , October 9, 2020 6:28 am


Carlisle United has advertised for a new strength and conditioning coach to work with their team. The Cumbria based English side competes in the 4th tier of the English Premier League.

The club started scouting for a new coach for the role following David Waldie’s departure to Mansfield last month. Greg Short is working with the club’s chief coach Chris Beech in the interim.

The English club side also known as the Blues advertised last week that they were on the lookout for a ‘Passionate Individual’ to help the players reach peak strength during the season. It wants the new recruit to have a bachelor’s or master’s degree in sports medicine. The new coach as and when appointed will directly report to Bleach and work towards keeping players fit and strong. In addition, he or she will have the onus to ensure the players remain injury-free and physically fit.

The hunt for a new physical and conditioning coach comes in the wake of some top stars of the club missing out due to injuries. Their talisman players JJ Kayode and Omari Patrick had missed the club’s season opener against Oldham Athletic in the Carabao Cup this midweek. The team clearly looked rustic and out of sorts in the absence of some key players. With a couple of nursing preseason injuries, Carlisle United went down 0-3 in the match.

It clearly was an unimpressive performance from Bleech’s side. Played in an empty stadium, there were too many defensive lapses at the back, which Oldham capitalized on.

Once Carlisle United finalizes a new coach, they will feel much relieved with players hopefully in safer hands pre and post matches. In addition, their morale will be further boosted with the signing of South African international Dean Furman.
