JOHNNY WILSON, Notts County’s award-winning Head of Medicine and Sports Science, has left the club after seven years.

On Friday, Wilson announced he was leaving Meadow Lane “to explore new opportunities, adventures and roles in sports medicine.” In May, Notts County were named the best sports science and medicine department in League Two at the FMA awards.

Wilson accepted the award on behalf of his team and immediately dedicated it to Matt Salmon, the late Mansfield Town Academy physio, who tragically died from cancer in May at the age of just 25.

County owner Alan Hardy, a prolific Tweeter, has regularly taken to social media to praise the work of Wilson. Despite the challenges of a tight League Two budget, Wilson has been innovative in his use of both equipment and resources, keeping veterans Shola Ameobi, Jon Stead and Alan Smith in peak condition as the club has mounted a promotion push.

He has also regularly shared his methods with other practitioners and students via videos on social media - something which is still frustratingly rare in professional football.
