Club news

Lewis Black - Club Physio.

Dunston UTS FC are delighted to announce the appointment of Lewis Black as Club Physio.

The 22 year joins Chris Swailes’ back room staff having completed 3 years of studying at Newcastle College University Centre, graduating with a First-Class Honours Degree in Exercise & Sport Rehabilitation.

Alongside his studies he completed a three year placement at Park View Academy of Sport and was able to develop his skills as a practitioner.  

Following on, he then became sports therapist for Chester-le-Street United.

On his appointment Lewis stated: 

When Dunston approached me I immediately knew that being a Dunston lad myself this would be a great move for me.

Having been at the club for a couple weeks now, I can’t thank Swaz, Jon, Malcolm, the players and the rest of the committee for being so welcoming.  I already knew what the club is all about after following them from a young age and being one of the thousands who watched the club lift the Vase at Wembley in 2012.  Nine years later is seems surreal that I’m part of the backroom staff and I am excited to bring a fresh element of sports therapy for this great club.

 My duty of care is to make sure each individual is fit for every training session and match, if they aren’t this is where I will intervene by offering a wide variety of treatment modalities.  Aiming for players to get the beloved shirt back on as soon as possible.

I am grateful for the opportunity which has arisen at the club and I can’t wait to spend many years here, helping the club continue to move up the football pyramid.
