HULL Wasps are delighted to welcome aboard new club physio Ciara Morrissey.
Ciara will join the Wasps’ bench for the first time for Saturday’s home game against Team Durham Wildcats at the Gemtec Arena (tip-off 7pm).
Ciara, who has come to Hull from Limerick in Ireland, works for Hull And East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust as a junior physiotherapist. She qualified from the University of Huddersfield in 2009, with B.Sc. (Hons) in Physiotherapy.
While studying, she acted as physiotherapist for the university's Gaelic football team and recently started helping out the Hull Ionians rugby union team.
Ciara also starred for the University of Huddersfield's girls' basketball team and said she was happy to be getting back involved with the sport. She said: "I am delighted to be working with the team for the rest of the season."
Wasps captain Jamie Goodwin said: "We are very lucky to be getting the help of someone with Ciara's knowledge of both physiotherapy and basketball. I am sure she will prove a valuable addition to the team and will be a big help in both the prevention and treatment of any injuries."
