Michael McBride joined us in the Summer of 2021 and brings a wealth of experience in elite sport. Currently working as Head of Medical Services at Scunthorpe United and also holding a long-term post with the Scottish Football Association since 2002, Michael’s career spans many football clubs including Coventry, Bristol, Chesterfield and Wigan. He graduated from Glasgow in 1993 with a degree in physiotherapy and has since undertaken a MSc in Sports Medicine at Glasgow University in 2000. He has continued to develop his skills with a Diploma in Injection Therapy from Coventry University in 2007 and completing the FA Diploma in Football Medicine in 2020. He also holds the ATMMiF qualification which is the advanced trauma medical management in football.
Working within sport at elite level has enabled Michael use his extensive sports knowledge in private practice, and he has sought to share this working in various practices across the country. His depth of understanding of injury prevention, rehabilitation, sports psychology and motivation makes him a valuable asset to our team.
Michael is available for appointments on a Monday and Thursday evening in Doncaster.
