Wakefield Trinity is pleased to announce the appointment of the experienced Matt Crowther as Head of Physiotherapy. In his playing days, Matt was a wing three-quarter who played for Sheffield Eagles at Wembley, scoring a try, in their famous giant-killing defeat of Wigan in the Challenge Cup Final in 1998.
He went on to play with Huddersfield-Sheffield and Hull FC making a total of 133 club appearances and 8 International games for Scotland. Matt trained in all aspects of his profession and worked for the NHS for several years.
He then returned to Rugby League joining Castleford Tigers in 2013, working alongside Daryl Powell, beginning a long and successful association with the Tigers. Matt has also held the position of Head Physio with the England Rugby League International squad.
Matt’s vast experience and education equip him with the necessary skills to support the playing staff. The aim is to ensure they receive the best possible treatment and care and spend the maximum time in the playing area.
Head Coach Daryl Powell said: ‘Matty Crowther is one of the best physios in the country in any sport. He played the game during his younger days, so he fully understands how players feel and what their needs are. He will be a crucial part in making sure we keep our players on the field and fit and healthy . I know the players will enjoy his personality and knowledge and what it takes to look after your body from a physical perspective. It is a crucial signing for the club and he was one of the first people I spoke to when I got the job at Trinity.’
Wakefield Trinity looks forward to the edge that Matt Crowther will bring to our preparations, ensuring our players are in top order to meet the challenges of the Championship head-on.
