FWD, forwards; MID, midfielders; DEF, defenders; Max Velo, maximum velocity.
Difference column represents statistically significant contrasts (p < 0.05). ND, no differences.
Continuous variable contrasts are mean difference [95% CI], ES.
Count variable contrasts are ratio difference [95% CI]. Ratio 95% CI are asymptotic.
