The second video in the series will again show fans the people who work behind the scenes, providing a real insight into how everyone at the club is working to deliver success on and off the pitch.
This week’s video focusses on the work of Sports Scientist Sam Harrison and what he does both at Lesser Hampden and Lochinch.
Sam gained a BSc (Hons) in Sport and Exercise Science at Stirling University. He is currently undertaking a MPhil degree at Stirling. His research topic is “A Systematic Review of Strength Assessment in Youth Soccer Players”. He hopes to graduate in November 2021. He also achieved his UKSCA Strength and Conditioning Accreditation while at Stirling.
Sam is responsible for player physical preparation for both training sessions and matches. A large part of his work is to minimise player injury risk through analysis of player workload indicators during training and matches.
Sam also manages the strength and conditioning programme for the players in the gym.
Chief Executive Leeann Dempster said: “The Club is still fresh into the new, professional era after its previous long and illustrious history as an amateur club. What we want to do is to show our members and our supporters just how well our team is working to deliver success on the pitch alongside a club that delivers real impact in the communities in which it is rooted.
“We hope they enjoy the videos, and understand just how vital the efforts of every single member of our club team are to delivering success.”
