Loughborough Dynamo assistant manager Brad Munn has been speaking about the support they are trying to provide to players during the ongoing lockdown and subsequent break in action.
Having last played a competitive game on 31st October, Munn insists that losing the social aspect has been the toughest part to take but wants to return to football as soon as it is safe to do so.
He told the club’s website: “People’s mental health is a big talking point in the world right now, especially in sport, so it’s just ensuring those skills are up to scratch. I have found it important to set tasks so that the team is as motivated as possible and have the resources available to train where possible.
“We need to make sure that the players know that me, Lee [Attenborough] and Venners [Steve Venables] are just a call away, we’re at the end of a phone if a player is struggling and need a question answering.”
