TGG Live: Recovery Webinar

RECOVERY is more important now than ever in football, because unprecedented fixture congestion is leaving so little time between matches.

That means there's an ever-present risk of fatigue and injuries. In this online event, expert practitioners from elite clubs will be telling you how they monitor recovery and about the methods and tools used to promote it.

We'll be gaining insights into the approaches at both Academy and first-team level - and learning about specific areas such as nutrition and sleep from leading experts.

The Recovery Webinar is a full-day event taking place on Wednesday March 10th. It will be via Zoom and tickets are available HERE. Places are limited.

There will be the opportunity to ask questions and share you own thoughts and experiences at the end of the sessions. A recording of the event will be available to ticket holders only for a limited period afterwards.

Here are our speakers (in alphabetical order):


Will Abbott is Academy Performance Manager at Brighton. Abbott has worked for the south coast club for almost nine years in a variety of sports science and S&C roles.

Scott Guyett is the Head of Sports Science and Strength and Conditioning at Crystal Palace. The Australian was a professional footballer before moving onto the staff at the club. He is currently studying for his Uefa Pro Licence - and the Masters in Sporting Directorship at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Marcus Hannon is the Head of Nutrition at Aston Villa. He has previously worked in rugby union, for Ulster, Wasps and Northampton Saints, and in football for Everton.

Chris Haslam is the Head of Athletic Performance at Brentford, a role he's held for the last five years. Chris says: “Our philosophy is to focus on doing the basics incredibly well" when it comes to recovery - and he'll be telling us how they do that.

Tony Strudwick is the Head of Performance for Sheffield Wednesday and the Wales national team. Previously he was Head of Performance for Manchester United for 12 years, where he made recovery a key part of their strategy, with dedicated staff, research and facilities.

Anna West is the founder of Sleep2perform and works with elite athletes and teams, including Brentford and FC Midtjylland. Her work helps them to understand and improve their sleep patterns by looking at factors including circadian rhythm, stress levels and lifestyle choices. Helping players (and staff) to become better sleepers enables them to ultimately become better performers.
