Yate Town start pre-season training

On Wednesday evening the Yate Town squad assembled at SGS in Filton with all the support staff plus the vastly experienced fitness coach, Mark Hammond, who is spending 6 sessions with the players during pre-season.

On a very warm, sunny evening the players met at 6.30pm and were put through a number of stretching exercises and runs during a 2-hour session to prepare them for more rigorous activities on Saturday morning.

The players were all dressed in their training kits and both manager, Darren Mullings and his staff were very pleased with the first session back after the summer break in which the players set themselves targets in order to come to this first session in good shape. Amongst the group were the club’s new signings Ross Stearn, Lloyd James, Lucas Tomlinson, Marlon Jackson and Will Christopher.

The first pre-season friendly takes place on Friday 5th July against Portishead, with the venue now being confirmed. The game being played at Avonmouth FC with a 7.30pm kick-off
