Premier League clubs to resume training from today

Posted on by

first_imgBy Simon EvansMANCHESTER, England (Reuters) – Premier League clubs will return to training on Tuesday after agreeing to allow “small group” sessions to begin, with a possible return to normal ‘contact’ training next week.The league held a conference call for all 20 clubs on Monday where the move was given unanimous backing but there remains no firm date for the season to resume.Another meeting is scheduled for early next week when the league will decide on whether to move to the second phase which allows for training involving contact.It is the first move in the league’s ‘Project Restart’ plans to resume play in the league, which has not held a game since March 9 due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.The league has set June 12 as a tentative date for a restart of action but chief executive Richard Masters said they were aware they would need to be flexible.“We have been focused on this staging post, it’s not a firm commitment, for June 12. What we are able to do today is basically to move forward on small group training,” Masters told reporters on a conference call.“Next week we are going to be discussing full contact training protocols.“Once you know when you can start full contact training, and we’ve had a proper discussion with clubs about how much is required to create the fitness levels before they can start playing, we are then in a position to be able to confirm when the season start is.“What we don’t want to do is continually move that start date so we haven’t changed it. We need to be flexible and acknowledge we are in a step-by-step process,” he added.Failure to resume the season could cost the league around 750 million pounds ($913.80 million) in lost revenue from broadcasters according to British media estimates.Some reports said clubs could lose out even if the league restarts should broadcasters demand a 330 million pounds rebate.DOOR OPEN The Government last week opened the door for the return of elite sport, but several hurdles remain before the Premier League can resume behind closed doors with the aim of completing the remaining 92 matches of the season.Some players have expressed concern about the health risks involved in a return to play but Masters said the league had done its best to create a safe environment through consulting with government and health experts.“Clearly we cannot de-risk the entire thing. But I think what we have created is an extremely safe environment that is the first stage of a return to training. So hopefully we have reassured all players and managers on that basis,” he said, adding there would be further consultations ahead of each stage.Some managers, such as Newcastle United’s Steve Bruce, have expressed concern about whether there will be enough time for players to get match-fit before the league resumes.Mark Gillett, the Premier League’s medical advisor, said they were aware of the need for preparation time.“Safety is the key thing running through all the measures we’re putting in place. I spend a lot of my time in club football, so I do understand the need for football-specific training,” he said.“We will do everything possible to try and ensure that clubs get enough time to try and prepare in the best way possible, to keep them safe during games.”Clubs will have been encouraged by the return of the Bundesliga at the weekend — the first major soccer league in the world to resume after the lockdown.The prospect of clubs playing their remaining matches at neutral venues has receded with more than half speaking out against such a proposal.Safety measures for group training are expected to include tents where temperature checks will be conducted, strict hygiene criteria, no canteens and no showers. A maximum of five players will be allowed per pitch with tackling forbidden.Players will be tested twice a week and are being asked to provide written approval that they have received and understood the club’s COVID-19 policy.last_img read more

No. 1 Wisconsin hosts Mankato

Posted on by

first_imgGREG DIXON/Herald photoThe Wisconsin women’s hockey team — fresh off a weekend sweep of No. 3 New Hampshire — hosts Minnesota State Mankato this weekend in WCHA conference play at the Kohl Center.The series against the Mavericks is the start of a five-game homestand for the Badgers that includes matchups with St. Cloud State and the U.S. Select Team.The Mavericks come to Madison with a 3-6-1 WCHA record, good for sixth place. The series will be the first matchup between the two this season.Top-ranked Wisconsin, which owns an undefeated record at 14-0-2 overall, enters the home series with plenty of momentum. Head coach Mark Johnson said in his Monday press conference that Wisconsin will not be overlooking Mankato.“There’s no layups right now within our league,” Johnson said. “And so as we approach it as a coaching staff — and I think the mentality of our players is very similar — no matter what we did Saturday or last Friday, that’s not going to help us beat Mankato on Friday afternoon.”Johnson’s press conference highlighted the successes of senior Jessie Vetter, leadership of senior Erika Lawler and intensity of junior Meghan Duggan. All three players have been integral parts of Wisconsin during their time at UW.Vetter picked up her 31st shutout of her four-year career at Wisconsin against New Hampshire last weekend in Florida, and Duggan and Lawler continue to be the driving forces behind the Badger’s explosive offense.Johnson noted the perseverance Vetter displayed as a sophomore and spoke about the steady growth that has contributed to the senior netminder being among the top goalies in the world today.“I think the biggest storyline with [Vetter] is that she redshirted her first year, and in our business, that’s real difficult to do, obviously, with our scholarships and the numbers that you carry,” Johnson said. “But we were able to talk that out that first year, and the end result is four years later you’re seeing an athlete that is certainly mature, has played at a very high level, has played at the international level, has a few gold medals in her back pocket.”Lawler, the Badgers’ captain, earned Johnson’s praise for her commitment to the program, her leadership qualities and her skills on the ice.“[Lawler] may not be big in stature, but she’s got a gigantic heart,” Johnson said. “And where the puck is, she’s going after it.”Duggan, who like Lawler is on the Badgers’ top 10 all-time scoring list, received acclaim from Johnson for her positive attitude.“She’s got some energy, and she just enjoys what she’s doing and certainly enjoys being here Madison and being part of our program and certainly has the opportunity to do some other things on the international level here in the next couple of years,” Johnson said. “And so I think she’s just enjoying what’s going on at this particular junction within her life.”When asked what makes this year’s team different from teams of past years, Johnson noted that the depth of UW’s forwards gives this year’s squad an edge. Lawler and Duggan lead the offense, but it is fueled by young goal scorers sophomore Hilary Knight and freshman Brooke Ammerman. The offense is also solidified by the strong two-way play of Angie Keseley, Jasmine Giles and many others.“I think after our first game down in Florida, when talking with the UNH staff, they were very impressed with the depth of our forwards, and I think probably right now, as I look back over the last month-and-a-half or two months, we’re pretty deep in those areas,” Johnson said. “And so teams will have difficult times matching up with our depth there. And so the scoring coming from different people on given nights really makes you difficult to defend against.”last_img read more
