Burton Albion have this week announced a partnership agreement with Perform at St. George’s Park.
The Sky Bet League 2 side, currently in an automatic promotion place, will be utilising the state of the art facilities at Perform’s National Football Centre base in Burton.
Perform, the official healthcare provider for St. George’s Park, will also be undertaking a recovery specific research programme as part of the deal with The Brewers.
The FIFA F-Marc accredited medical centre, which is open to the public throughout the year, will be used by the Burton Albion first team and their medical staff to help aid with rehabilitation of injured players.
Phil Horton, Perform Director, commented; “We are delighted to be partnering with our closest Football League side and look forward to working closely with the medical team at Burton Albion.
“Perform is proud to be a part of the Burton community, with 100’s of local people utilising our services throughout the year, and our partnership with Burton Albion is a great extension to this.
“We are excited about undertaking the research programme into recovery techniques with the Brewers and hope to have some industry leading results to share on the back of it.”
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, the new Burton Albion Manager, commented; “The training facilities at St. George’s Park and our association with Perform combine to give us the best training base in the country, which was part of my decision for taking the job at Burton Albion.
“We are very fortunate to have these outstanding facilities on our doorstep and we look forward to working with Perform for many years to come.”
