Huseyin Torgut joins backroom staff Hus will be working alongside Ben Coles as an additional physio We’re happy to announce that physiotherapist Huseyin Torgut will be joining Ashford United from Greenwich Borough. Huseyin worked at Greenwich Borough for 4 years and of course worked closely alongside Gary Alexander and our new assistant manager John Mackie, and will also be familiar with Tom Carlse and Sam Corne who also recently joined from the South London based side. Torgut comes with a vast amount of experience as he graduated from the University of Birmingham and worked for Aston Villa in an academy role, before taking the job of head therapist at Tamworth FC in the conference. Following that, he moved to London with Barnet FC whilst they were in League 2 and then more recently to Charlton Athletic where he still works part time. Away from football, he runs a full time sports injury practice (Pro-Sports Injury Management) as well as working at Kensington Sports Medicine and Physio. Hus spoke with us earlier: “It was a really difficult decision to leave Greenwich after four years. A lot of the success there was down to both Gary and John. It will be a fantastic challenge to replicate that down at Ashford as a team. People from within the game at this level and above speak so highly of the club (Ashford United), its organisation and its fans. Both are so important at this level. As a physio, I’m ambitious and want to be associated with successful clubs and working towards the top ends of the table. I will be demanding a lot from the players withing my jurisdiction. I wouldn’t be at Ashford if I didn’t see a road to success in which I could contribute to.” We also spoke with the gaffer as he welcomes Torgut to Homelands: “I am very pleased to be reunited with Hus joining my backroom staff as physio and will be assisted by Ben. Hus brings so much more than just being a physio, he knows the game. He is quality at his job and a real character. Welcome on board, Hus!” Above – Ben Coles in action as he helps Joshua Oyinsan versus Greenwich Borough last season. (Photo credit: Ian Scammell at Oyster Bay Photography).
