Knill - No Easy Ride For Players
Alan Knill has talked further about his plans for pre season and promised that the players won't get an easy ride over the coming weeks because he has plans for next season.
Speaking to the Official Site Knill said the only thing that was important is that the players are perfectly ready for the opening league game of the season, but despite working them hard, he does want to keep things fun and light because that way, he knows he'll get even more out of them.
'We eased into it gently and then did our testing on Sunday, but yesterday was our first real session. The players realise it was a tough day, and there are plenty more of those to come. We want it to be enjoyable for the players but they have to be pushed.'
Knill adds that following the fitness tests he can confirm that all the players have come back in very good shape and he's delighted to see them show the commitment required to the plans they were given over the summer.
