Manager Neil Harris was celebrating his 39th birthday yesterday out in Portugal on our training camp, and he explained that he’d been pleased with the efforts of the first team since they returned to training ahead of the coming League One campaign.

Speaking to the official site as the players continue their preparation work, Harris said it had been tough with testing temperatures and three sessions a day for the group most days, but he had been pleased with how they had taken to it, and applied themselves.

‘The players have attacked it as well as they do everything. They have been giving every session their absolute all, which is brilliant. To do that in testing conditions, with the weather this hot, is extremely important in terms of them finding their base fitness level for the season ahead.’

Harris went on to explain that the daily sessions had been moved around a touch to try and keep things fresher for the players, but whether they had been early or late sessions, the players had got on with the task at hand.

‘Some sessions have been early in the morning with others late at night, and no matter what has been arranged for them they have really embraced the challenge. Understandably there has been some fatigue at times because of the conditions, which is to be expected when you come abroad during pre-season. It’s the type of test we wanted the players to have under their belts.’
