Fleetwood Town’s summer recruitment drive continues as the club revealed they have appointed James Barrow as first team sports scientist.

Barrow will work under head of sports science Youl Mawene and joins the club after working at Wigan Athletic and Bolton Wanderers.

Barrow is the son of former Wigan boss Graham and Town head coach Uwe Rosler is pleased to add the sports scientist to his team.

He said: “I have worked with James at Wigan and (technical director) Gretar Steinsson has worked with him at Bolton and we are pleased to have James with us at Fleetwood Town.

“We’ve added a real quality member of staff to our group. We have more human resources and quality in our staff, meaning that we can focus on the smaller details of our work which inevitably make us better.”
