SQUAD TO SPEND A WEEK IN SPAIN IN PRE-SEASON

Keith Curle's side to be based at the Pinatar complex

4 April 2019

The Northampton Town squad will spend a week at a Spanish training camp as they prepare for the 2019/20 season.

The Cobblers will be based at the Pinatar complex from Sunday July 7th until Saturday July 13th, with at least one game scheduled to take place towards the end of the week, with more details to be confirmed in due course.

The Pinatar complex offers first class facilities and hosted Newcastle United for a mid-season training camp in both February and March as they played fixtures against CSKA Moscow and Antwerp. The training base is accessible from both Murcia and Alacante airports and the Sixfields Travel Club are looking in to the possibility of running a trip for supporters who wish to follow the team during the week. For more details please call 01604 706401.

"This will be an important week for us," said manager Keith Curle.

"We will have a huge amount of work to get through in pre-season and this time away will give us a chance to spend the week together, often with multiple training sessions per day to get a lot of that work done.

"The facilities there are fantastic, they are often used by Premier League sides and international squads and this will help us enormously with our preparation for the new season.

"We are looking to play at least one fixture when we are away, against another club who are at the complex towards the end of the week.

"The players will be working very, very hard during this week, they will be very focused and it will give us an excellent platform for our vital pre-season work."

The new EFL season will begin on the weekend of August 3rd/4th 2019.
