The Machno preseason has now began and it’s started with a BANG!

It all started with a team meeting on 30th of June, the management team Eric, Owen and Steven set out the objectives for preseason and the upcoming season. This included letting all of the players know what is expected of them – including high fitness levels,  camaraderie, commitment, enthusiasm, respect and much more.

They also laid out the expectations of players in different positions, the formations and tactics we will be adopting and so on – basically a full brief of what Machno Utd expect to achieve in the near future and details of how this is going to be achieved.

Following the meeting the team couldn’t wait to get started. So far there has been a huge emphasis on fitness through rigorous training and tests over the last couple of weeks. Players are already seeing the benefits from this and the “in-game fitness” is proving to be a huge success; among other amazing training techniques that our management have learned over the years and from their recent coaching certificates.

This is a truly exciting time for Machno Utd and this season is going to be amazing.

Also, let’s not forget that throughout the summer our Machno kids are also training hard and “In the blink of an eye they will be playing for Machno Utd” (stolen phrase from Will Davis).

Lastly we have 3 more locals taking the Football Leaders Course in August, so a huge thanks to: Teleri, Aron and Jamie. Good luck gang – have fun…
