New backroom staff appointment
Richard Haydon joins as assistant manager and physio
Published - 11th Jan 19
 

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Richard Haydon to the backroom staff. Richard will be taking on a joint role within the team, of assistant manager and physio. His role will start immediately, with his first game being this Sunday (January 13th) away to Downend.

Richard joins Torquay United Ladies with a wealth of experience in football throughout the South West. His playing career took him to Bude FC before going on to eventually manage the side. He has also held positions at Hoslworthy FC, Launceston FC and most recently Saltash United, where he is currently team physio. As a mature student at Marjon, studying Rehabilitation in Sport and Exercise, he is also involved in the coaching staff for the University teams. Richard has also held the position of Physio for the English Schools FA for the regional trials for the last three years.

Richard spoke about his new role at training this week: I am very excited about joining Jamie and TULFC and helping them to progress forward for the remainder of this season and into the future. I aim to assist Jamie as much as I can and if my experience in football, learning from different managers as well as building my own philosophy, can help to enhance to playing ability of the squad then this bodes well for the future. I believe that if as a player you can improve yourself by at least 1% in every game and training session, then this will benefit the team massively moving forwards. The enthusiasm in the squad is fantastic, the players just need more support to improve the technical and tactical sides of their game. This is an exciting time to be joining a club that ply their trade in a high standard of football.
