Hear from the U's Head of Sports Science on the Impact partnership
CAMBRIDGE United have teamed up with Impact Sport to provide the U's first-team, academy and scholars with Impact’s range of sports nutrition products.
U's Head of Sports Science, Matt Walker comments on the partnership: "Our new partnership with Impact has begun very well with many supportive comments from Academy parents with players using the products from the start of 2014 and with the scholar group. In my role of Head of Sport Science it is crucial that we look to cater for the highest quality products, training and match-day resources for the players within our care from the youngest Academy player to the most senior in the 1st team squad. Clearly there are financial limitations to this but that just means we have to be even more resourceful and use even more initiative to gain the best possible advantage over our opponents. The fact we are recommending an evidence based product with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives plus having minimal sugar level matches our view of providing products that promote wellness and health compared to many on the market. We really believe that the use of Impact will benefit our players in their work and recovery."
He continued: "It is testament to our beliefs that Impact products are used by the likes of Southampton FC who have been at the cutting edge of innovative development with their players for many years now producing players capable of performing at the highest level. We are hoping that we can begin to work toward specific bespoke products for our football club especially at 1st team level as the relationship develops but for now the products have proved highly beneficial in our recovery from a relentless period of games and training as we approach the end of the season and our tenth consecutive month of physical work."
