Ross Jones has joined Blackpool as the club’s new Head of Sports Science.
The 26-year-old, who holds a Masters in Applied Sports Science, arrives at Bloomfield Road from fellow League One side Rochdale, where he has spent the past 12 months working in the same position. Prior to that, he worked on the Fylde Coast with Fleetwood Town.
Jones replaces Adam Forrest in the role, who has accepted an opportunity overseas. He will put the players through their paces when they report back for pre-season training this morning.
