Fit­ness first as Petruzi re­turns

Rossendale Free Press - - Motors -

BACUP Bor­ough Man­ager Brent Peters has teamed up once again with vastly ex­pe­ri­enced and suc­cess­ful per­for­mance coach and fit­ness an­a­lyst Jimmy Petruzi.

A mem­ber of Peter’s back­room team back in 2011/12 when the team fin­ished the sea­son on a cred­itable high and lifted the League Chal­lenge Tro­phy, Petruzi comes with a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence hav­ing worked with sev­eral Foot­ball League clubs. Peters is de­lighted that the pair have linked up again.

“Hav­ing Jimmy Petruzi on board is a real boost for my play­ers,” he said.

“They will be able to work with Jimmy, not only on as­pects of their fit­ness and con­di­tion, diet, but also the men­tal­ity and mind set of in­di­vid­u­als on all as­pects of the game and col­lec­tively the team.

“Jimmy is highly ex­pe­ri­enced in this field along with all as­pects of sports psy­chol­ogy, his ex­pe­ri­ence will be in­valu­able.

“De­spite a suc­cess­ful work­ing re­la­tion­ship from his pre­vi­ous time with Bacup, the de­mands from not only Bri­tish clubs but over­seas clubs did pre­vent him from con­tin­u­ing his post with the club.

“I am hon­oured that whilst Jimmy is very much still in de­mand, he wants to work with me and my play­ers at Bacup again

“Whilst Jimmy will not al­ways be able to at­tend games, he will work closely with my cap­tain, Adrian Bel­lamy, on a full pro­gram that will ben­e­fit all.”

Petruzi said: “I will be com­menc­ing the role of per­for­mance coach at Bacup Bor­ough Foot­ball Club and I am look­ing for­ward to work­ing with highly ex­pe­ri­enced man­ager Brent Peters and his hard­work­ing and ded­i­cated staff.

“There is a fan­tas­tic group of play­ers, a com­bi­na­tion of young ta­lented play­ers and ex­pe­ri­ence. I be­lieve I can com­ple­ment the ex­cel­lent work that has al­ready been go­ing on at the club.

“I have a lot of re­spect for the League, Brent and his staff both on and off the field of play, I am very happy to be back at the club. I am look­ing for­ward to con­tribut­ing to­wards de­vel­op­ing a brand of foot­ball peo­ple can en­joy and as­sist­ing to pro­duce a strong com­pet­i­tive team.” ●● Brent Peters, right, wel­comes per­for­mance coach and fit­ness an­a­lyst Jimmy Petruzi back on board at Bacup Bor­ough
