Hanover Football Club was very impressed with the intensity and structure to the training session. The 26 man squad were put through a specifically designed session which targeted their pre-season fitness needs.

Chris O’Connor, Leisure Attendant – Fitness Instructor at Tandragee Recreation Centre, commented, “Pre-season training is an important phase of training, it strengthens and conditions the body for the season ahead and reduces the possibilities of injuries. The Hanover team were on top form today and the weather was an extra bonus for the training session.”

Pre-season team fitness training options include, a one hour fitness session on the 3G pitch, 45 minutes fitness session followed by one hour on the 3G pitch or a match for one hour. These are available Monday to Saturday until 31st September 2014.

The floodlit 3G pitch officially opened in June this year, it was funded by DARD’s Axis 3 Rural Development Programme, delivered by SOAR, along with match funding from Armagh City and District Council.

The pitch was developed using the latest synthetic turf and provides an excellent playing surface, enabling it to withstand multiple training sessions or matches every day of the week in all weather conditions.
