The Newcastle squad are busy getting fit out at Carton House, Kildare in Ireland and they start their days with a 6:00 am wake up call and are their bikes at 7:00 am.
Chris Hughton – three training seessions a day
And Chris is replicating what he did last year with the squad, and squeezing in as many as three training sessions each day, so the lads are all ready and fighting fit, when they have their first friendly game at Carlisle United next weekend.
Hughton today gave further insight into the training camp and said:
“We were able to have a good pre-season there last year, and we had a good start to the season.” “We know the facilities there, they’re very good, and they looked after us well.”
“We were able to do good work there, and it seemed right to go back.” “Most days we’ll have three sessions, and we’ll get out of it what we want to get out of it.”
“It’s a good environment. It might not make it any easier for the players, but we’ll get the most out of the week.” “The most important thing is we get the work done over the period.”
This is the Carton House in Kildare where the lads are staying – and it’s a 4 star hotel and looks very nice, very nice indeed.
So it’s not surprising that Chris has returned again this year, after the lads did so incredibly well last season.
He’ll be hoping for the some success next season too, and if the lads again over-achieve, it’s 95% certain that Chris will be back again to Carton House in 12 months time.
Don’t change something that’s working.
