Pre-season preparations in full swing
Manager Gordon Bartlett has started his pre-season training schedule and is happy with what he has seen so far. Said Bartlett: ‘ Training has been good but not with big numbers so far because we have not allowed trialists in for the main sessions this pre-season. We also still have a number of the lads away on holiday, some with work commitments and a few injuries. However the sessions and the attitude have been excellent’
Last Saturday the club held separate trials and an amazing 70 hopefuls turned up; 10 of these trialists have now been invited into training sessions this coming week.
