David Francis Eddie McGuire Collingwood

Physioworks Health Group Director and Collingwood Football Club Head Physiotherapist David Francis has been presented an Honorary Lifetime Membership by the Collingwood Football Club.

Collingwood Life Membership was bestowed on David Francis for 24+ years’ service as head physiotherapist to the club & over 500 AFL matches preparing and supporting the Magpie players, including the 2010 AFL Premiership.

David attended the 2019 Collingwood FC AGM with his family & Physioworks Co-Director Andrew Dalwood, where he was presented with Life Membership by Collingwood Football Club President Eddie McGuire.

“The strength and integrity of football clubs is very much dependent on the quality and commitment of the people who serve it. Great clubs have great people…and all are great Collingwood people,” McGuire said in reference to David and other life member inductees.

In his role as head physiotherapist, David expressed most enjoyment in seeing the development of players, as both athletes and young people.  He believes the ongoing challenge of working in a dynamic, high pressure elite sporting environment, has ensured his own continued professional advancement in sports injury prevention, management and rehabilitation.

“I love the club” said a humble David. “It has been and is a wonderful journey, honour and experience to work at Collingwood Football Club” added David while thanking his family and the many at the club for the opportunity, their support, guidance and friendship.
