FC Halifax Town boss Jamie Fullarton has welcomed the increase in contact time he will have with his players following the club’s move to a full-time model.
The Shaymen will be training around three or four mornings a week from next season instead of the two nights a week model they have had since reforming in 2008. They will use the Weetwood Sports Park in Leeds as their main base, and are set to begin pre-season training in the week commencing June 25.
“We’re working hard behind the scenes to rebuild the squad,” said Fullarton. “As a manager with a history of being a developer of players, the most important aspect for me is being able to influence and develop players and work towards a game plan on a Saturday, and having that contact time with the players.
“We’re in a league that is a full-time league now because of the amount of teams that are full-time. It’s very much welcome by myself. It’s an opportunity to work with the players for longer throughout the week.”
