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.

The Long and Winding Decline by ElephantintheRoom
The long, slow decline in Town’s fortunes since we became part of the mysterious and opaque ‘Marcus Evans Business Empire’ has been both hugely depressing and acutely embarrassing. But if we’re honest, Town’s decline pre-dates the much-maligned Marcus Evans’s arrival by decades. Both on and off the pitch.
