Stags’ treatment room tribute to former physio

Mansfield Town FC has opened a new treatment room in memory of former academy physio Matt Salmon.

Matt, 25, who was at the club for more than three years, including a spell as first-team physio, died in May after a seven-year battle with lung cancer.

The new room, situated in the Quarry Lane Stand at One Call Stadium, was opened by Matt’s wife, Emily, and his immediate family. It will be used to treat Stags’ injured first-team players during the week.

Matt’s father, Andy Salmon, said: “We are so proud to have a room named after Matt.

“His focus was mainly towards the players andhe would have been delighted to have a better treatment room to treat the players – that was where his heart was.”

Stags operations director Tina Broughton said: “Matt was highly respected and his duty of care towards the players was second-to-none.

“As a person he was warm, kind-hearted and possessed an admirable spirit.”
