England v Australia: 1st Investec Ashes Test - Day Four

Treatment: Rehabilitation Therapy

"I’ve known Alan for around 17 years and worked with him closely for six years at Villa. Alan had a huge level of responsibility as the squad of players the physio team were responsible for was full of internationals. I had my fair share of injuries (unfortunately) at Villa and on many occasions Alan administered my treatement and rehabilitation on a one-to-one basis. With full responsibility and pressure for getting me fit, free from injury and ready to perform to my best, Alan never let me down, the club down or himself down. Smudged, as I call him, is one of a very small group of physic's I trust, still refer people too and recommend. After 22 years as a professional footballer, that puts Alan Smith very, very high up in my estimations, and someone who knows his job to the highest level. I can comfortably and confidently recommend Alan." - Dion Dublin, Aston Villa
