“I held a similar role at West Ham and I really enjoy managing people and being involved with the team on a day-to-day basis.

“From the moment I met them, I could tell how ambitious the head coach Lee Johnson and the chief executive officer Mark Ashton are.

“I have new ideas and in conjunction with the head coach, I think I can help put in place systems and processes which will only benefit the team."

Meanwhile, Andrew Proctor joins City from Oxford United where he played a significant role in the development of the medical department, which saw the League One club share promotion and two Wembley finals. 

“Bristol is my home town and I have seen the transformation that has taken place at Ashton Gate over the last few years,” said Proctor.

“Seeing City’s genuine ambitions to reach the Premier League, along with the facilities and the way the club is run, really makes this an exciting move for me.

“I can’t wait to start working with Lee and the rest of the team."

Bristol City CEO Mark Ashton added: “It’s great to be able to welcome them to the medical team here and I look forward to the impact they will have.”
