Head of Analysis, Matt Coleridge had this to say about the importance of the role within the side –
“This season we took a real step forward at Macclesfield, with our video analysis and I firmly believe that has contributed to our success on the field. The feed back delivered to our players and coaches in the form of video and statistics allows us to track performance and in turn helps push development of the players while giving the coaches a means to assess the overall teams ability to execute our tactics.”
