Chelmsford look to the future
 Women's Football News 18 Jul 2011
 
Chelmsford City put last season's relegation from the Eastern Region League Premier Division firmly behind them by embarking on a pre-season schedule with a difference. 
 
Instead of the usual fitness-based training followed by friendly matches, it was decided to do something different to make things more exciting for those involved.
 
The club joined forces with two local gyms to get the players in peak condition ready for the new season. Spring Health provided a contingent of first and reserve team players with a free Body Combat class whilst staff at Virgin Active Gym took the players through a circuit class which was followed by free use of all of the gyms other facilities including the gym equipment and swimming pool.
 
This week the players look forward to taking part in a military style boot camp session which will be followed by their first friendly against Cambridge Women on 24th July. The week after, the teams travel to Long Lane followed by the annual Essex FA Charter Standard Adult Tournament.

After an injury hit season, the club's first team found themselves relegated into Division One of the Eastern Region League after losing a play-off final. The reserve team on the other hand had great success by winning the Essex County Women's League and League Cup double. Since then the club's senior section has gone through a massive restructure which will hopefully mean that from now on, both teams will be in a better position to compete in their respective leagues.
 
In further efforts to bring both squads together, the players will head up to Thorpe Woodlands Outdoor Activity Centre in Norfolk to take part in a team building weekend which completes the squads' preparations before the first team face Leverstock Green in the opening fixture of the 2011-12 season.

First team coach Sharon Brownlie commented: "The first team went through utter hell last season due to a number of players suffering long term injuries. The lack of movement between the two senior squads meant that at times we were playing games with 9 and 10 players which was heartbreaking for those involved.
 
"It was a real credit to the players that we completed the season and although we suffered further heartbreak at the hands of Billericay Town in our play-off final, we go into this season with renewed optimism and with both senior teams now under the same umbrella we can look forward to an exciting season ahead. Our aim will be to hopefully get back to winning ways but most importantly we want the players to start enjoying themselves again."

Chelmsford City would like to thank both Spring Health and Virgin Active for their hospitality and for making pre-season that bit more enjoyable!
