Assistant manager on first two days of pre-season tripFleetwood Town’s assistant manager Chris Lucketti told the Club website he is pleased with how the first team squad have started their pre-season training camp in Germany.
Lucketti travelled to the Club’s Hennef training base 24 hours earlier than the squad with sports scientist Youl Mawene in order to check the facilities out firsthand before the start of training.
The former centre half, who made more than 600 league appearances as a player, was more than impressed with the players' progress but admitted there is a lot more hard work to come.
He said: “The facilities are superb. The pitches and equipment are great and it is an ideal place for the lads to carry on their pre-season training.
“They arrived on Sunday, dropped their bags off and went straight into a run through the forest to get the journey out of their legs.
“On Monday they had three sessions, the first a run at 6.45am. They have worked really heard and we are delighted with the effort they are putting in.
“It is a great environment for the lads to be in together for a week. It is especially good for the new signings. It gives them a week of living in each other’s pockets to bond and get to know each other which is sometimes difficult to do during the season.”
Since the Cod Army’s arrival on Sunday afternoon, the rain has poured down but the conditions have still been humid.
Lucketti continued: “This week will especially will be tough because we have got a week where we have got the lads all day and night.
“We can put them through their paces and really start to work on some principles of what we’ll be using this season.”
“I think the lads will prefer the rain if I’m honest to the sun, I never use to like running in the sun!
“So, the rain has been a welcome bonus for the lads running and the surface, making it better under foot.”
