Cutting the ribbon in 2019

Steve officially cut the ribbon to open Bridge Health & Wellbeing in July 2019. As the lead physiotherapist at Bournemouth Football Club at the time, we were so pleased he took the time to come and help us celebrate our opening.

After months of renovation (and years of dreaming!) the doors to our health and wellbeing clinic in Christchurch, Dorset were finally open.

Fast forward two years, a global pandemic, three lockdowns and countless appointments and classes later and we are delighted that Steve has come full circle to join our physio team.

“We are thrilled that, after being released by the club, Steve has chosen to join us at Bridge Health & Wellbeing. Steve and I originally trained together at the University of North London, completing our Sports Therapy degrees. He has been part of our Bridge Health & Wellbeing journey, right from the start. We are delighted to be able to bring his skills to the clinic and looking forward to working with him.”

Steve has many years of physiotherapy experience and a keen interest in sports medicine. He has spent 20 years working in professional football at both AFC Bournemouth and Millwall FC respectively.
