Ross Jones has been appointed as the club’s new Head of Sports Science.
He takes over from Kevin Gibbins, who left this summer to take up a similar role at a Championship club.
The 25-year-old, who has a first class master’s degree in Applied Sport Science, moves to Rochdale from Fleetwood Town, where he spent three years.
Jones took his first Dale session on Monday, when the players returned for pre-season training.
Gibbins leaves with our best wishes, and we’d like to wish him every success in the future. We’d also like to thank him for his hard-work, dedication and contribution during his near six-year stay at the club.
