We are pleased to announce that Kal Singh has been appointed as the new first-team performance analyst at the club.
Kal arrives at Blundell Park having gained a wealth of experience whilst working at the Barnsley Academy - working with their Academy sides and with their first team.
Speaking about his appointment, Town boss Paul Hurst said: “We’ve brought ‘Kal’ in, he’s joined us today. It’s a position that we advertised a little while back and is one that is standard for football clubs, to produce analysis on the opposition and also on ourselves. So he will be working closely with the first team staff, filming the games, coding the games, and it will get to the point where the players will have access to all of the clips. These are realistically things that most clubs have in place. When I came back it wasn’t there and I think it is an important part of the game.
“While, one hundred percent it’s about results on a Saturday, and we are desperately trying to improve those right now, part of the reason for coming back here was to try to develop the club. I think that we are all aware that there are lots of things that we can improve on. I guess that when I left the first time that was part of the reason, I’ve come back now and hopefully we can strengthen every department.
“Talking about employing an analyst is just an indication of where it’s at and we need to improve. I’m not saying that all of a sudden we are going to start winning games because we’ve got an analyst, it’s about being professional in our approach, doing things right, and hopefully, this is the first step in trying to improve things.”
