I am going to kick off training on Tuesday 25th July at Warsash at 6.45pm. Starting with a run along the beach and the usual fitness stuff followed by a kick about.

The running will be along a gravel track and the shingle beach, so select the appropriate foot wear. NB: No changing facilities available - sorry. I suggest you park in Newtown road or in the Salterns Social Club car park.

There is a cut opposite the club between the houses that leads through to Strawberry Fields park adjacent to Hamble river. I will be waiting on my push bike because I am older than you!

The following week we will train two nights Tuesday at Warsash and Thursday at Burridge - pending a phone call to Barrie! Once we start playing friendlies we will drop back to training once a week and then onto out usual slot at Wildern which I would like to extend to an hour an a half?

All the best
Pete Lyons

sounds good to me. apart from the extended 1/2 hour at wildern. dont think that will work, but i guess we'll see. i'm going to take training by storm in pre-season, watch my space..i mean this space. x

Bring it on, also good idea i think to extend the Wildern sessions, means they will be that much more competitive, Sandy watch out.

I'm well up for a good preseason training session.

If we extend the wilden lot is it cos Pete wishges to do fitness (which is needed all season long) if so could we not do it on the grass and save having to pay for another 1/2?

i agree dooks. only trouble obviously, is when winter shows its ugly head. wildern is brill for a 5,6 or 7-a-side game, which we all really enjoy.

it would be a shame to waste time on there doing fitness work i think. we'll see what the gaffer says in jooo-ly. x

I thought he meant get there earlier to do a bit of fitness on the grass like we did for a while last season before it all just died the death.
