New treatment room opened in memory of former physio

New treatment room opened in memory of former physio

A new treatment room has been opened at One Call Stadium in memory of former academy physio Matt Salmon, who died in May of last year aged 25.

Matt was at the club for three-and-a-half-years, which included a spell as first team physiotherapist. He sadly passed away after a seven year battle with lung cancer.

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

At the opening, before the Stags’ 3-1 win at home to Barnet on Saturday, Matt’s father, Andy Salmon said: “We’re so proud to have a room named after Matt. His focus was mainly towards the players and I think he would have been delighted to have a better treatment room to treat the players – that is where his heart was.”

“He loved working here. We are so proud as a family to have this named after him. We are so pleased and very thankful."

Operations director Tina Broughton said: “Everyone at the club was unanimous in the belief that a new treatment room should be named after Matt. As a professional, he 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. Though he was a humble young man, we know he would have been extremely proud by having a new treatment room named after him for the benefit our medical staff and first team players.”
