Football in limited form has returned to the Beveree It’s been over three months since the sound of football’s being kicked, coaches issuing instructions and teammates laughing with each other reverberating around the Beveree Stadium. This week though a semblance of normality returned to our home, as Gary McCann and his staff hosted two optional and socially distanced training sessions. A number from last seasons squad, some Academy graduates and a handful of unattached players attended the sessions on Tuesday and Thursday. Mark Findley, the club physio ensured all who were present were tested for high temperatures, and all relevant FA guidelines were followed and adhered to during the different training drills. Manager Gary McCann said “It’s obviously been a long time, and it great to get back onto the pitch. All those who chose to attend took heed of the rules and it was a couple of fun but functional sessions.” Chairman Jacques le Bars was also happy to see the Beveree being used safely “It’s not something we took lightly, and thanks to Mark Findley who was central to ensuring it passed off without any issues. It was great to see football albeit in a limited form return to The Beveree. This is the start of a long process of the club returning to normal and we’re working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure we’re in the best possible shape for when football proper is able to return”. As the club start to look to the future, McCann said “Our intention is very much to keep a number of last seasons squad. This is something myself and Jacques are working on as we try our very best to plan effectively for next season"
