New Coach, New Training Methods.

The new first team captain, Bob Jenner, quickly made his mark by introducing a series of technical coaching exercises to the usual pre-season fitness slog. Although fitness was not avoided and certain innovations were served to exercise the mind as well as the body, notably the 108 Steps circuit. This involved a run from the club’s ground in Tytherington to the bottom of the 108 Steps to commence 10 laps of a circuit going up the 108 Steps and returning via Churchside and Church Street. Surprised at the relative fitness of certain renowned “forward trundlers” the Captain took time out to walk round the circuit in a clockwise direction only to find the “forward trundlers” huddled in the Fiesta Fish Bar, taking a rest for every other lap! Very much a case of “playing what you see in front of you”!
