Don’t worry about the Fifa World Cup, we aren’t even thinking about big Vlad’s Tourney.
Instead we’re getting stuck into off season S&C with Hammy and looking forward to pre-season training.
Andrew Hamilton is this season’s Strength and Conditioning Coach and he comes with a truck load of experience.
Having completed an HNC in sports coaching, Hammy moved into the leisure/sports development working with Clackmannanshire Council as a Gym Coach. From there he added further coaching qualifications before enrolling in a modern apprenticeship in personal training, nutrition and leisure management.
Notably, Hammy has also achieved a level 1 in s&c with the IRB and hoping to start the level 2 this year.
Still working with clacks council as senior gym instructor looking after the Alva community Clackmannanshire, Hammy manages to fit in some of his own classes and a dozen personal training clients.
Hammy will be overseeing S&C sessions at Mayfield’s “bear pit” every Monday, Wednesday and Friday 5.30pm – 7.30pm and will be in attendance every Wednesday for one on one tuition.
He will be a busy man, combining his off field duty’s with training and playing for Dundee in season 18/19.
We asked Hammy how he was enjoying his new role so far:
“Lads have been smashing it since start of May, even Geo has been down!”
We wish Hammy all the best with his new role at Mayfield.
Hammy will be part of the coaching set up at Mayfield this year which includes, Head Coach Colin Sangster, Phil Godman, Ian Lockart and Ian Robertson.
Pre-season starts Tuesday 26th June 2018, 6.30pm sharp.
