"We’ve got most of the squad from last season and we’ve strengthened as well, so we’re in a good place"

Sam Morsy has praised Town’s young players for their involvement in the Blues' Loughborough University training camp. 

Kieran McKenna’s side travelled to Leicestershire on Monday as part of their preparations for the 2022/23 season.

So far, the group have been put through training on the grass and in the gym, as well as some team building activities including white water rafting on Thursday afternoon.

Amongst the players who made the trip to Loughborough were youngsters Antoni Bort, Tawanda Chirewa, Tommy Hughes and Cameron Humphreys.

"Pre-season is a big opportunity for the squad to get together and for the young lads to be involved," said Town’s captain.

"I think the young lads have done exceptionally well so far. I’ve been really impressed with them. It’s been a good camp so far. 

"It’s been good and it’s been very hard, but there has also been a lot of work with the ball. 

"It’s been straight into the football but there has been a lot of running as well. It’s probably as much running as I’ve done, if I’m honest."

As well as allowing the group to put in another week of hard work, the camp has also been an opportunity for relationships within the squad to develop further.

Sam continued: "Having time away together is massive because it allows everyone to bond in a different environment. We’ve got most of the squad from last season and we’ve strengthened as well, so we’re in a good place. 

"Now, it’s about coming together, doing the patterns better on the pitch, and building resilience."
