Bristol City implement short term individual training instruction

Bristol City have instructed their players to follow individual training programmes away from their Stoke Gifford Stadium College training base until further notice.

Whilst the FA Women’s Super League is currently suspended, there is a small chance that the season could resume on 3 April meaning that Tanya Oxtoby’s squad must keep themselves at full fitness in case they are recalled into action.

The Robins have reported this morning that they have instructed players and staff to work away from the club for a period. Each player has been issued with a tailored training programme along with the necessary fitness equipment. Players have also been asked not to make physical contact with supporters within the local community.

Bristol City climbed off the bottom of the FA Women’s Super League table with victory in their last league fixture. They won 1-0 at relegation rivals Birmingham City as they leapfrogged both the Blues and Liverpool into 10th position.

At this stage, it is unknown whether the FA Women’s Super League will continue or whether it will be cancelled but the measures which Bristol City have implemented today could help the players keep free of the Coronavirus and ensure that Oxtoby’s side are raring to go should their fixture against Everton go ahead on Sunday 5 April.
