Staff step up the intensity for week two

9 July 2012

Whilst a number of clubs return to pre-season training today, the Millers begin their second week of preparations ahead of the new campaign.

Whilst a number of clubs return to pre-season training today, the Millers begin their second week of preparations ahead of the new campaign.

 

With the players being eased back on their return, Assistant Manager Paul Raynor has explained how the levels are being stepped up for this week's sessions.

 

"It's been more intense this week," said Raynor. "Last week was about assessing the lads and easing them in, whereas we've stepped it up now and we're doing a lot of ball work. It's getting tougher and more intense, but so far there have been some very good performances."

 

With nine new recruits hoping to blend into the squad, Raynor is pleased with the general reaction, citing only manager Steve Evans' absence as a negative from the session.

 

"There's a very good camaraderie from the squad, they're getting to know each other and there's the usual banter flying about. The only disappointment was that the gaffer had to leave prematurely as he's not been feeling up to scratch. He's seen the doctor, he's going to take some time off, and hopefully he'll be available for the Parkgate game at the weekend."

 

The Millers game at Parkgate has now been rescheduled for a 12.00pm kick-off.
