A stalwart of the Club for more than 16 years, Colin is now in his fourth season at the helm of the Gunners’ medical department.
Having taken his current position upon the departure of his long-serving cousin Gary Lewin, who now carries out a similar role with England, Colin has played a huge part in the development of the medical department.
Last season saw two more physios, David Wales and Simon Harland, working permanently at the training ground under Colin’s stewardship to ensure that each player’s recovery is monitored and treated with maximum efficiency – a set-up that continues this year.
Always keen to innovate, Colin has built consultation relationships with nutritionists and other sports medicine researchers as he strives to ensure that Arsène Wenger’s players enjoy the highest calibre of treatment, rehabilitation and conditioning. A chartered physiotherapist, he is a highly-popular figure with players and staff alike.
Along with Dr O'Driscoll, Colin oversaw the creation and set-up of the brand new state-of-the-art medical centre at the training ground, completed in early 2011/12.
