Town Appoint New Fitness Coach
Tuesday, 12th Jun 2018 15:01
Nathan Winder has joined the Blues as the club’s new fitness coach, having recently left Leeds, who he moved to from Barnsley earlier in the year.
Barnsley-born Winder played as a defender with Halifax Town, Chesterfield, Hucknall Town, Hinckley United, Alfreton Town and Ilkeston Town.
The 35-year-old was the head of sports science at Oakwell and Elland Road, having previously been the head of academy sports science and medicine with the Tykes after a spell as head of academy athletic development with the South Yorkshire club.
He has a Masters in Sports and Exercise Science from Sheffield Hallam University, having previously studied at Loughborough University.
Previous fitness coach Andy Liddell opted to leave the club this summer with his contract up.
New boss Paul Hurst says at his press conference that he will talk to Darren Smith, Town’s head of academy goalkeeping, about the senior goalkeeper-coach position vacated by the retiring Malcolm Webster.
Smith will be coaching the Blues' keepers once they return for the start of pre-season on Friday.

April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
On This Day - Saturday 28th April 1962 by clivebleedingthomas
As a 15-year-old I make my way to Portman Road full of anticipation and anxiety. Our rivals, Burnley, are playing at home to already relegated Chelsea. A home win must be on the cards. On the following Tuesday they will play their game in hand against Sheffield Wednesday. However, Town are top of Division One and facing Aston Villa.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
I am already sick of the fiasco involving our new leader, the interview with our owner and all that goes with it, so I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
