In October / November 2019 MMP Physiotherapy’s Jack Derrick accompanied the U19s team to Dubai. The team had a fantastic 2:1 series win against the United Arab Emirates after playing three 50-over fixtures. Initially they suffered a narrow 2-wicket defeat at the Dubai International Stadium, but then went on to win the second match by three wickets at the ICC Academy, and this victory was then followed by a 25 run win two days later. 


 European Short Course Swimming Championships


December 2019


In December 2019 the team at MMP Physiotherapy were honoured to be invited to provide physiotherapy to the athletes competing in the European Short Course Swimming championships that were to take place in Glasgow. 


The event is held every two years, and in 2019 saw over five hundred athletes from all over Europe make their way to Glasgow to compete in forty short course (of 25m) swimming events over five days of intense competition.


The event was hosted by British Swimming in collaboration with partners: Glasgow City council, Event Scotland, and UK Sport, and took place between the 4-8th December at Tollcross International Swimming Centre. 


Mairi Macphail, who attended the event with fellow physiotherapist Jack Derrick said,


‘it was great to watch and support Great Britain’s swimmers in action, and to experience the thrill of an international simming competition. Thank you to EMS for the opportunity!’

In August 2018 Mairi, along with fellow physiotherapists Bruce Mutch & Amy Macdonald were privileged to be asked to support the divers at the European Championships that were held at the Royal Commonwealth Pool in Edinburgh. Both Bruce and Amy were working on Mairi’s behalf, and have also worked with her with the Island Games.


It was indeed a triumphant day for British divers: Olympic Champion Jack Laugher, with his infectious smile and happy laughter, had a double success, taking Britain’s first European gold in the one m springboard event. Then, the new pairing of Lois Toulson and fifteen year old Eden Cheng came in gold position in the 10m platform title. The highlight for the Edinburgh crowd was though, of course, the bronze medal won by British diver James Heatly who had also won a medal for Scotland at the Commonwealth Games earlier in 2018.

-Medical workshop on Concussion and Head Injury management at the International Cricket Council 


Recently, Mairi Macphail attended a medical workshop, hosted by the International Cricket Council, on concussion and the management of head injuries. 


Cricket may well be a non-contact sport, but as with any sport, injuries do occur, and it is vital that physiotherapists and other medical professionals who are in a position of care of the players are up to date with their professional development training, in line with the most recent medical research and treatment methods. 


The role of the ICC is to protect the health and wellbeing of international cricket players, ensuring that they receive the maximum of the mental, health and physical benefits that this great sport offers. The ICC’S medical advisory committee was established in 2017, and provides expert, up to date advice in sports medicine issues in international cricket. 


Cricket Scotland




Until recently returning to work exclusively with private clients, for almost a decade Mairi provided physiotherapy to the players of Cricket Scotland.


Cricket Scotland is as prestigious as it is longstanding. The first match for which there are records is recorded as being played in September 1785 at Schaw Park, Alloa. Then, the teams on both sides were populated by members of the aristocracy. Today, over two hundred clubs compete in a wide variety of competitions, and in 2018 Scotland beat England for the first time in their history!


Sadly, Mairi is too young to have offered physio to these members of the British elite, but she has provided physiotherapy to its 21st century members who are equally as skilled and charming!
