Welcome our new Head Sports Therapist Hannah Tsang


It’s a bitter sweet time at Derby Elks, long time Head Physio Ryan Smith is stepping down to spend time on other ventures and his family. The club are forever grateful for the time and effort Ryan has put into the club and the friendships made. We wish Ryan all the best in his endeavours.

On another note, it is with great pleasure in announcing Ryans replacement, new Head Sports Therapist, Hannah Tsang @ht_sportstherapy, the club is looking forward to working with Hannah, who has helped us over the last few seasons.

A few words from Hannah.

“I am excited to be supporting Derby Elks for the 2024 season!

After graduating from the University of Derby in 2021 in Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation, I went on to completing my MSc in Strength and Conditioning at Loughborough University. Throughout this time I’ve worked closely with Ilkeston RFC which has led me to working with Derby Elks this season.

I’ve always been intrigued in injury mechanisms and rehabilitation techniques, but also how to reduce the chances of those injuries to occur. My role with the team is to provide emergency trauma care, provide pre and post match support and I will be working closely with the coaches to design and lead a warm up which gets the players physically and mentally ready for the match ahead.

Let’s show the league what Derby Elks are made of!

Welcome aboard Hannah! 🙂
