Tough week ahead as squad prepare for the new season

7 July 2019

The Northampton Town squad are set to depart for their Spanish training camp.

Keith Curle’s squad will be based at the Pinatar complex near Alicante arriving on Sunday evening (July 7th) and returning on Saturday evening (July 13th), with one public game, against Coventry City, to take place on Friday July 12th (5pm CET kick off, 4pm BST).

22 players are set to make the trip, with all of this summer's new arrivals in the party.

Youngsters Scott Pollock, Ryan Hughes, Morgan Roberts and Jay Williams will also be part of the squad. 

"It will be an important week," said assistant manager Colin West.

"The facilities there are excellent, we will get through a lot of work and it will be good for the players to spend time together.

"We have a lot of new players and the week will help form the trust and the bonds that you need during a long season and we are realy looking forward to it."

Two players who aren't making the trip are Billy Waters and Junior Morias, and West explained the situation.

"We are able to take 22 players and we need to take a balance of attacking and defensive players," he said.

"There is no point taking too many attacking players and not enough defenders because no one benefits that way. Keith has spoken to Billy and Junior and they know the situation. It is a little unfortunate but they understand. The door is not closed on them, they understand the reasons behind it and they know they need to keep working hard."

We would like to thank all supporters travelling to support the squad, with the Sixfields Travel Club taking a party out on Tuesday. Supporters are reminded of Thursday's open training sessions and the chance to spend time with the squad after Friday's game.

We will bring you coverage of the training camp and Friday's game across the club's channels.
