Baker: "Plans Are Being Implemented"

1 June 2015

Club's assistant manager says change is occuring behind the scenes after extensive summer review.

Neil Baker has told the club’s official web-site that there has been a thorough review of all aspects of the club both on and off the pitch and the assistant manager says that will result in better preparation for the coming season.

The club’s assistant manager says that new ideas have been implemented when it comes to training, fitness, conditioning, recruitment and the player welfare. The club are looking to introduce a more strategic approach to bridging the gap between Academy and senior football and discussions are on-going in reference to a more structured mentoring policy to help the young members of the first team squad more.

Baker told the club’s official web-site: “There has been a lot of talking and discussions this summer and it is up to us as staff to implement the changes we want. We want to do better and we are going over everything to give ourselves the best chance.

“We have done our talking and now we have to make sure that we get those plans into operation. We have gone over everything and made some adjustments that we think can help us.

“Our preparation will be better and although it won’t happen automatically overnight if we can prepare better, improve our recruitment, get fitter and work even harder then there is no reason why we cannot have a better season.

Baker added: “We looked doomed last season after getting just four points from our first 11 games and we had to work hard as a club to turn that situation around. It took a tremendous effort but we were determined to stay in this league and we became harder to beat.”
