Keeping fit and focused

26 March 2020

Morgan Fox says the Owls are doing all they can to stay fit, despite being in isolation with the rest of the nation due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The Wednesday camp, from scholars all the way up to the first team, brought a halt to training last week but the players have been set a strict regime to which they must adhere whilst at home.

Fox told “We had our last training session last Friday with the team at Middlewood Road.

“Now, following the government guidelines we can no longer train, but we have been set a strict programme by our fitness coach Tony Strudwick, and we follow that individually at home.


“The sports science guys can track our progress even from home due to the equipment we have. We need to be ready for when the season restarts.

“There’s runs, bike sessions and upper body sessions. We obviously don’t have access to a gym so it’s using what we’ve got at home and to the park for a run within the guidelines set for everyone.”

The whole country is understandably finding the current lockdown tough, but Fox reiterates that it’s vital we do everything we can to help the NHS through these incredibly difficult times.

He added: “It’s important that we keep our distance and isolate ourselves. It’s vital that everyone stays at home and follows the government guidelines.

“This time is all about helping the NHS and the wider community, so we’ve all got to do our bit to get through this.”
