Michael McBride has been named as Chesterfield’s new head of physiotherapy & performance.
McBride, who is the physio for the Scottish national team, worked with Spireites manager Gary Caldwell at Wigan Athletic. He previously had spells at St Johnstone, Bristol City and Coventry City.
Commenting on the appointment, Caldwell said: “Michael is someone I have known for a long time as when I made my debut for Scotland in 2002, it was his first game working for the national side.
“I was later with him at Wigan Athletic and I’m looking forward to working with him again. We will have a medical department that will be the envy of other clubs in League Two.”
McBride replaces Rodger Wylde, who has left the club after three years as head of sports science & medicine. “I’d like to thank Rodger for his services and wish him all the best for the future,” added Caldwell.
