In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Head of Academy Sports Science & Medicine at Derby County FC, Luke Jenkinson. Luke first appeared on the podcast in episode #60 of the Pacey Performance Podcast where we spoke about how he integrated play into the academy set up at Sheffield United. Since then Luke has moved onto Derby County where he is now Head of Academy Sports Science & Medicine and is undertaking a professional doctorate. Luke is a really good friend of mine and it is no surprise that he is doing so well. When talking about a coach, people often ask, 'is he good?' and a lot of the time we don't actually see our friends and peers coaching, we just know they are a good person. However, I have seen Luke in action and know that if someone were to ask me about Luke, I would answer with, 'he's a great guy and a great coach'.
Hope you enjoy this episode with Luke Jenkinson.
