As next Tuesday’s Johnstons Paint Trophy match draws closer and with no match scheduled for Saturday Manager Gary Johnson rang the changes today when he took the squad down to the Panther Martial Arts establishment on Pen Mill Trading Estate for a training session with a difference.

First the lads were put through a 45 minute fitness test with a variety of exercises to try. 
This was followed by a short break and then some muscle stretching and toning sessions before another intensive self defence session where the lads were taught how to defend themselves.
All of the squad were requested not to try some of the moves on the field though, no matter how much provocation is exerted on them!!
It made for some spectacular footage and if you want to get a real feel for what went on watch out for a 9 minute video on Glovers Player of the whole session coming shortly.
