A DIFFERENT TYPE OF HOLIDAY FOR NATHAN SMITH

Close season for football players usually means a break with friends and family in places like Marbella and Las Vegas. Unless you’re Yeovil Town’s Nathan Smith…

Defender Nathan has booked himself on a ten day silent retreat in India.

On a video on his twitter page Nathan said: "I have travelled to India to try something different. I have done all the party islands and they are not my scene now.

"The ten day silent retreat course will involve no speaking, no reading and no writing. I will learn meditation and different techniques in the art of living.

"It is not a religious thing, I just think that with the way the world is with all the distractions, you can sometimes fail to see the important things."
