Chris Hussey has reflected on what he feels has been a hugely beneficial training camp in Portugal.
The Reds have been putting in the hard-yards in a warm-weather training camp this week with the new season now only a fortnight away.
“The whole week has been pretty tough. I’ve enjoyed it but these trips are always tough,” Hussey told swindontownfc.co.uk exclusively.
“We’ve been doing an upper body session every day, plus double training sessions in the morning and afternoon, so it has been intense and the lads are shattered.
“Being together as a team is crucial and everyone has been bonding together this week.
“It has been good to all be together, you can enjoy each other’s company and everyone gets to know each other.
“You can feel that togetherness already and everyone gets on with everyone, you can go into anyone’s room and speak to anyone, there are no cliques and everyone is together.
“You need that to be successful and the gaffer emphasises that.
“It has been a positive week on all fronts.
“Everyone looks good in training and it has been a really good week.”
