Ian 'Buster' Gallagher


A club legend has returned as Ian ‘Buster’ Gallagher has joined Dave Challinor’s team as head Physiotherapist.

Buster spent 25 years at the club as a staff member and player before leaving the club in 2017. Ian went on to spend the last 3 years with York City F.C. but now he is back.

He made one appearance for the club, in 1996, before being forced to retire due to a knee injury and he trained to become a physio. He was appointed head physio in 2012 and quickly became a fan favourite. The club have now joined forces with Ian’s company ‘First Team Therapy’ and are excited for Buster to join the squad.
