Sunderland AFC is delighted to introduce a new online feature where we will introduce you to the team behind the team.
We will take a closer insight into the individuals who help provide support to the current and future players of Sunderland AFC and all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes.
First up is Academy Analyst, Jordan Rowan.
U18 Academy Analyst
Time at the Club:
Two years as an intern and 10 year full-time.
Providing support of both video and insights (data) analysis to our U18 players as part of a Multidisciplinary Team.
How would you describe a normal working day?
"We would start with a morning meeting with the MDT (staff) presenting the team post-match analysis videos along with the post match data report (team and individuals) and discuss how we want the session to look.
"Afternoons, I will lead the post-match session with support of the coaching staff, in this session we will normally split the group into three smaller groups (units) to allow for more communication and detail.
"In the back of the session we will also organise individual analysis time for the following day to discuss and show the players video/data around their individual learning plans."
