“The carbohydrate gels and rehydration sachets enable to players to replenish vital nutrients, and the flavoured whey proteins are also popular with the playing staff.
“Clive established an outstanding working relationship with our former Head of Strength & Conditioning, Joel Tratt and I have no doubt that this partnership will flourish under the stewardship of his successor, Dave Beasley.”
