York9 FC made an addition to their technical staff on Monday with the hiring of Sam Gregory as its Director of On-Field Analytics.
Most recently leading the soccer intelligence team at Sportlogiq, a sports analytics group based in Montreal, Gregory will report directly to York9 managing consultant Angus McNab.
“Sam is a great addition to the team. This will be the third time I’ve worked with him, having worked with him very briefly at Opta and much more extensively during my time at Sportlogiq,” McNab said.
McNab went on to say that Gregory will support him and supply opposition analysis at first, before turning his attention to player recruitment later in the year.
“As a soccer data scientist and a long-time supporter and follower of the sport in Canada I’m excited to contribute to the development of analytics in the league with York9 FC. I’m looking forward to the chance to work with Angus McNab again as well as one of the best coaching and technical staffs in Canada,” Gregory said.
