A fantastic week

Gaffer reflects on a good week in Cornwall

Kevin Blackwell is more than happy with the work done during the Shakers pre-season training camp in Cornwall and states the main aim of the exercise has been completed with 100% success with team bonding firmly established amongst the new look Shakers squad.


Not only have the lads won both games, by scoring a staggering 22 goals, but training has been hard for all concerned whilst staying at the St Mellion resort.


Speaking this morning, Kevin Blackwell said:-


‘It’s been a terrific trip for the club and the players have worked very hard in training which reflected in the 2 games.  I’ve been delighted with their attitude and their professionalism shown during this week.  The main aim was to create a strong bond within the squad due to the fact we had so many new faces coming into the club and from what I have seen we have achieved this and moved forward very quickly in a short space of time.


As a club we’ve made some new friends in Cornwall and I’d like to thank everyone involved at ST Blazey FC and Wadebridge Town FC for the two games and the help they have given us over the week.  We are now on the way back North, and I know the players in particular are looking forward to Tuesday’s game with Blackpool, the rest of pre-season and our first game with Chesterfield in just over  two weeks’ time.


On a personal note I would want to thank the travelling fans, as there support was without doubt top class and the players really appreciated it.
