Oxford United would like to wish Andrew Proctor our best wishes as he takes up a new role as Head of Physiotherapy at Bristol City.
‘Procs’ has been with the U’s since joining from Exeter City in the summer of 2014 and had done a fantastic job in helping develop the physiotherapy and medical side of the club, something he is very proud of.
“I am very sad to be leaving the club” he told us. “I have made friends with so many people who I know will be friends for the rest of my life. We have shared promotion and two Wembley finals and it has been a privilege to work at the club for the last four years. I think we have made tremendous strides in terms of the facilities and the way we work with players to make sure they are looked after before and after every game. I couldn’t have asked for any more support than I have received from Darryl Eales and now Tiger, and with Karl Robinson in charge I believe the club is in fantastic hands.
“However, I have lived in Bristol throughout my time at Oxford so in many ways it is my home town club, and I have seen the transformation at Ashton Gate. Bristol City are a Championship side who have genuine ambitions to reach the Premier League and the facilities and the way the club is growing make this a really exciting move for me.
“I am looking forward to an new challenge but I want to thank everyone at Oxford and I leave knowing that they are heading in the right direction.”
Managing Director Niall McWilliams said:
“Procs will always be part of the Oxford United family and has done an unbelievable job for us. But Bristol City are a great club, in a higher division and right on his doorstep so we fully understand why he is moving on. He does so with our very best wishes and he knows he is always welcome to come back and see us anytime.”
