Moore: staff have been working extremely hard so we can train safely

31 July 2020

Darren Moore has praised his medical team for their fantastic efforts in getting Cantley Park ready for Rovers to return to training on Monday.

The EFL have created guidelines for the club to follow to ensure that every attempt is made to create a COVID-19 safe environment for staff and players.

“Head physiotherapist Jonathan Chatfield and the team here at Rovers have been working extremely hard to get Cantley Park in a state where we can come in and train safely,” Moore said.

“The paramount concern is the safety of everybody – that’s the number one factor. Chatts had to go through the medical protocol set by the EFL and has put those procedures in place.

“Only the first-team staff – so no external people, no one outside of that staff – will be allowed into the training ground. It’s a one-way route so you’re limiting contact with all individuals.”

Despite the coronavirus pandemic creating a new normal for football, Moore admits that he and his squad can’t wait to get back into the swing of things.

“It will be a little bit different because of the guidelines that we’re working under, but I’m just really pleased to be getting back in there. I’m looking forward to it," he added.

“We have to follow the policies set by the Government and the EFL but just to get the boys back and working in small groups will be great.

"It will be great to see them – they’re chomping at the bit to get back to what we deem to be some sort of normality."
