Preston North End's squad of players regrouped on Thursday last week to begin the tough pre-season training that they hope will see them reach peak condition in anticipation of the Premier League Northern Division start in August.
Many of the first Team squad of last season had already begun their preparations a week earlier with tough fitness testing examinations by top technicians at Ormskirk's Edge Hill University. This was a continuation of testing that began last season, which has allowed the tailoring of fitness programmes for the squad and for individuals, and ensures improved performance and player and team development.
Thursday's rendezvous was used by manager Simon Gerrard (pictured - www.kipax.com) to set out his vision for the season to the players and for them to present theirs before the sweat and tears began! This hour-long meeting allowed ideas to be shared and standards and targets to be set, leaving no-one with any doubt what the aims of this season are to be.
Initial training at Preston always involves all players from the first and reserve team squads being put through their paces together, with coveted places in the first team up for grabs to everyone within the squad. Indeed, opportunity to impress this pre-season is even greater with the first team squad needing to replace a couple of important players after end of season retirements and departures to University.
With Training scheduled for three times per week - on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday mornings!! - the players will have to show their determination and enthusiasm to get through the initial hard work required before any tournaments or friendly matches take place.
