Morris: "The Twice Weekly Sessions Help The Players Hit The Ground Running"

6 June 2022

Crewe Alexandra manager Alex Morris is a keen advocate of players ticking over fitness wise over the summer after being introduced to it as a young player himself.

Now in charge of his first pre-season as a senior manager, Morris has continued the trend of players coming into the training twice a week to work on their conditioning ahead of the full-time return to pre-season on 22nd June.

The players are invited into training on a Tuesday and Thursday and those that have further to travel have to fulfil individual programmes at home or at local fitness centres.

Morris told “Most of the players have reported back for the twice a week sessions. They have come back in shape and I think it benefits them to come in and do the work with their team-mates. They can have a bit of a social afterwards and a catch up and I think it all helps.

“We have been doing this for years at this club. He pre-dates back to Dario’s early days as manager and I think it helps them hit the ground running when we report back on a full-time basis.

“If they live further afield then we feel  it is counterproductive for them to travel in and then train for a couple of hours and then drive back, so they have their own programmes that they have to do at home or in a field.

He added: “It is all about building those fitness level back up, so they are ready for what is going to be a tough pre-season, so they are ready for when the season starts at the end of July.”
