Caitlin Brown: There is that break but we don’t stop


The huddle

While the summer break may see players and staff down tools for a few weeks and enjoy a well-earned rest, graduate sports therapist Caitlin Brown explained that the behind the scenes work at Lennoxtown and Barrowfield doesn’t stop, as she returns with a brand new certification under her belt.

Brown, who has been with the club for six seasons, has just completed a Functional Integrated Dry Needling course to bolster not only her own professional knowledge base, but what she can offer to support the squad going forward.

And with clinics and light training continuing through the quick pause from full training, the therapist says she can’t wait to continue to offer more and more.

“We don’t stop!” she began at Lennoxtown.

“I just completed a dry needling course – it was amazing, I can’t wait to integrate it into my work with the girls. It was a really good course. I planned on only doing a couple of modules, but I ended up doing the full diploma.

“We love expanding our knowledge as well and integrating that into our work with the girls, myself and Cat (Monkhouse) are booked in to renew our 'First Aid in Sport' at Hampden which you need to do every three years,” she added.

Brown first linked up with the Celts while studying and has continued with the club ever since, watching the side grow and evolve into what it is now. After an exciting first half of the season, she believes the anticipation and enthusiasm is palpable as the squad look to make the most out of the break.

“The girls are desperate to come back – I don’t think they’re enjoying the break! They are still invited to come back every night and train and we’re here as medical staff to see them and even though there is the two-month break, they are still training and working hard.

And the excitement for the 2019 season isn’t just limited to the girls, with the 24-year-old also feeling the buzz around the place, as she gears up for a long summer and second half of the season ahead.

“I think there’s more of a buzz this season, everyone is looking to each game as it comes and there’s a real winning belief which is good.

“The girls are pushing and the fact we’re talking about goal difference is incredible,” she admitted.
