Fleetwood Town are pleased to announce that Duncan Robertson has been appointed Club Doctor.
Duncan – pictured above with Head Physiotherapist Liam McGarry – brings a wealth of experience to the Cod Army’s medical department, having being a qualified GP for over 35 years.
The 57-year-old was brought up in Prestwick, Scotland and studied at Edinburgh University before joining the RAMC in the British Army in 1983, where he served as a regimental medical officer until 1992.
Duncan then spent the next seven years gaining global experience, working in The Falklands, Australia, New Zealand and Germany – before returning to Scotland.
He rejoined the Army in 1999, and completed three tours of Iraq and Afghanistan, before gaining a Masters Degree in 2006.
In 2007, Duncan took his first steps into football, joining the medical department at Derby County, where he stayed for three years, mainly working under Nigel Clough.
Spells at Aston Villa, Chelsea, Blackburn Rovers, and more recently Qatar U23s followed, before Duncan returned to the UK six months ago.
Duncan Robertson, said: “I’m really pleased to be here at Fleetwood Town and part of this exciting journey that the club are on.
“The club already have an excellent medical department and I’m here to enhance that, and provide support to the players and support staff across the year.
“I believe it’s an exciting time to be part of this club, and like everybody else, can’t wait for the season to get started on Saturday.”
Duncan replaces Chris Elliott, who has worked for the club for the last two seasons, as he returns home to Northern Ireland for his next challenge. The club would like to thank Chris for his work whilst at Fleetwood Town, and wish him and his family all the best for the future.
