Today is the day.
It’s been something that we’ve had built up for us for so long, that in some sense it almost feels like Christmas Day, only it’s much hotter than usual (unless you’re reading this in Australia, in which case it’s always this hot, but I digress).
Clubs in the Championship are set to return to training today as they begin for the restart of the season. Although given that there still needs to be a vote on whether or not the season will actually get underway, this could all be a little bit premature, but let’s try to keep a positive spin on things.
The club posted a message over the weekend in which the outlined all the various methods and protocols that the players would have to abide by when they do return, from the obvious ones like maintaining social distancing, to the more intriguing ones like having to wash their own kit.
Are you a fan of the new rules being brought in for training?
This news brought up a few positive responses from fans on social media, as well as a few more interesting ones.
