NCFCOSA donate trauma kit

8 September 2016

NCFCOSA recently donated trauma kit to Notts County in their latest show of support for the club.

The presentation took place pitchside ahead of last weekend's 2-2 draw against Grimsby Town.


Tom Gittoes, Notts County's head of academy sports science and medicine, said: "The equipment is being used for the foundation phase (under 9s-12s) training sessions, four evenings a week at Farnborough.


"While we hope we never need to use the trauma equipment, it gives our qualified medical staff, who are present at every training session, the ability to manage serious trauma events such as fractures. It would also help us stabilise life in the event of a cardiac or respiratory arrest. 


"This support from the OSA has allowed us to have this important equipment at every training session across all academy sites and we'd like to thank them for their donation."


Academy manager Mick Halsall added: "I would like to thank the OSA for this latest act of generosity. Their continued support is greatly appreciated by everyone in the academy.”
