Inside an Academy Series

An offhand conversation with Jonathan Henderson, the Head of Coaching at the Bristol Rovers academy, led to a series of articles looking at the various roles within an academy and interviews with the people who hold those roles in order to see what they do and why they do it.

Thus I came to talk to the Head of Coaching, the man offering Psychological Support, the Sports Scientist and the Performance Analyst.  It is, I believe, an unprecedented series of articles and interviews that provides coaches with a clearer picture of what goes on in an academy and the work put into the development of players.

The full series can be read on Blueprint for Football here.
