UCLan PaST Alumni Kristian Weaver has been appointed Head of Sports Therapy and Medicine for Everton Ladies Football Club.
Kristian initially joined the club in 2014, having previously worked with Birmingham Football Academy, which was sandwiched between two periods working part-time with Everton Football Academy.
He spent three months with Everton Ladies Development squad (U21s) before the First Team Manager, Andy Spence, asked him to join his staff ahead of the new Women's Super League season.
Kristian's main duties involve working with the First Team, whilst he also oversees Sports Therapists and fellow UCLan PaST Alumni, Gemma Bamford and Kathryn Hopwood, who work with the Development Squad and Centre of Excellence players (U9-U17).
Students from our Sports Therapy programme have also joined Everton Ladies medical department this year, gaining valuable experience with all age groups across the club and travelling with the First Team and Kristian to fixtures.
