Simon Crampton Head of Sports Medicine


Blackpool-born Simon joined the Dons in 2006 as Head Academy Physiotherapist and was quickly promoted to the first team environment and developing the medical department as Head of Sports Medicine. 

He heads up the first team's medical department, which includes a wide variety of medical and health professionals who make sure that the players recover as quickly and safely as possible following injury.

He’s also renowned for his unique take on events behind the scenes in The Bootroom, his must-read column in the match day programme.
