The 11 a-side football season starts in one month and there are cup matches and other stuff even sooner than that. So your lazy summer break is officially over … pre-season training starts in force this Wednesday 3rd August. It will be the same set-up on Wednesday 10th August as well.
What : Club training, led by Ally – a good mix of fitness, ball work and match play. It will be fun.
When : Wednesday, 8:30 PM – 10:00 PM, be there at least 20 minutes in advance to maximise time on pitch and loosen up properly.
Where : New 9-a-side pitch at Chaoyang Park.
Why : To get fit, no excuses.
Wear : It’s fake grass so decent training shoes, but not wet studs/cleets.
Worth : As usual it will cost between ¥ 20 to ¥ 30.
Weather : it’s not going to rain.
What else : Probably a beer or Sprite afterwards to chat about holiday romances.
Gate 7 is the normal 5-aside gate at Chaoyang Park East. Go in the main entrance for the car park, walk to the bike shed, then turn right. The 9-aside pitch is 50 metres along on your right hand side.
Please reply yes/no so Ally can get an idea of numbers to properly organise the session.
