March Training Camp Round-Up


A packed fixture schedule including EAFA League and Cup matches was the consequence of a long wait for the national team to return.


It’s six weeks since the England national team were last at the Home of Amputee Football, but the squad certainly picked up where they left off with another successful training weekend.


Heavy downpours and strong winds greeted the squad on Friday night, but the conditions certainly didn’t impact Dave Maclean’s decision to wear shorts.

It wasn’t time for standing around and so the lads were thrown into small-sided games on the opening night, while head coach Scott Rogers and Jamie Tregaskiss faced the media as they spoke to Manchester Evening News.


Maclean led the squad on Saturday morning, focusing towards creating the attack, while Louis Mayers’ session around set pieces and how to exploit opposition from dead-ball situations ended day two.


Owen Coyle was also in attendance across the day as he returned to Nantwich for the first time since his decision to step down as head coach last October.

With competition for places ranking up ahead of this summer’s Nations League campaign, goalkeeping coach Andy Rohman put shot-stoppers, Kieran Lambourne and Thomas Atkinson through their paces.


The weekend came to a close on Sunday with the final session led by Mark Dolan who concentrated on final third attacks.


Scott Rogers’ side can next be seen in action in just over three weeks' time as the national team returns across the weekend of April 14th -16th.
