THE Shrimps are maintaining their pre-season regime with a training camp at Myerscough College this week.
The club has organised a getaway for the squad to train and stay at the college and use its excellent facilities in a move that has delighted boss Jim Bentley.
He said: “A few years ago we went away to St Andrews in pre-season and it was excellent.
“We haven’t been able to do that since then but we are in a position now where we can use the fantastic facilities here that suit all our needs.
“It’s great because this is probably the hardest week of the pre-season.
“By coming here we can cram in three or four sessions a day on excellent pitches and a great gym and strength and conditioning room and we can do that without the lads driving up and down the motorway to get here.
“But aside from that, it is a great way to get the team together.
“We have a pretty full timetable of events and the lads can enjoy them and get to spend time with each other as well.
“The new lads can get to know the more established ones and it all works really well and we are looking forward to it.’’
