‘This is a brilliant project that will put us in touch personally with fans and grassroots football.

Having been involved in Private Practice alongside Football for many years, I am convinced that this will be a resounding success. This is a great initiative.’

Derek Wright, Head Physiotherapist, Newcastle United FC

Taking up private practice is the natural progression for most of us as we leave the game.

We genuinely do want to give something back to football and working with the register and at grassroots level gives us the perfect opportunity’.

Aston Villa FC

CSP members can now read our article in the latest magazine – Issue 2 Volume 25

FMPA CEO Eamonn Salmon talks about how the FMPA have a terrific resource of practitioners who, upon leaving the game, enter into private practice with tremendous skills and knowledge. But the grassroots game has had little or no investment in medical terms and relies on untrained volunteers often administrating questionable advice. So it was felt that we could put the two together for mutual benefit.

The FMPA Register was the result and launched recently.

Astonishing findings to new UEFA study

Screen Shot 2018-10-30 at 13.32.13

According to a new European study, it has proven that participation in grassroots football delivers more than £1bn of positive value to Scottish society. Providing economic, health and social benefits.

Scotland has 147,555 registered players, however there are more than 780,000 football players in Scotland.

The FMPA is fully behind this study and are playing their part in keeping people fit and in the game for longer. The FMPA Register will bring together the public, who are looking for practitioners they can trust, with the experience and skills to treat a football injury and promote a rapid return to play.

FMPA Register – making sure players receive the best care possible, from the very best in the game!
