An update from the Cobblers boss as players and staff undergo testing

28 May 2020

Northampton Town manager Keith Curle said it felt good to be back at the PTS Academy Stadium on Thursday morning.

The Cobblers boss, the staff and the players were all given appointed times to report to undergo Covid 19 testing ahead of a planned return to training, in line with the return to playing protocols, on Monday.

"We are planning for phase one of returning to training," he said.

"The first steps are for everybody to come in for testing. All of the players and the staff who are involved with phase one are all having blood tests and swab tests taken by the Club Doctor. The results from the tests will come back to the Club Doctor in 24 hours and then they will be shared with the players and we are obviously all hoping for a clean bill of health.

"The players are also collecting their training kits and the things they need to take them away and will then prepare to be back in on Monday.

"We are back in the environment, and it feels good to be back.

"There has been a renewed focus for the players. We have dates and times to adhere to for testing and training and we hopefully have an end result to aim for with the play offs possibly coming up. The fitness stats we have seen from the players look good, we expect the players to be in good shape and we can't wait to get going."
