Assistant manager Chris Doig was back from his holiday and ShrewsWeb grabbed a quick word with him to catch up.
One thing that Doigy is looking forward to is the players' returning for pre-season training a week on Friday at the Sundourne Castle training ground.
An investment of close to one million pounds has gone into upgrading the clubs training ground to make it the permanent base of the first team.
Work has been progressing well and Doigy paid a visit early this week to see how the work is progressing.
“It’s slowly coming together and with us starting in just over a week and a bit I’m expecting us to be there for the first day of pre-season”, said Chris.
“I’ll be disappointed if we are not but they are working hard up there to get things done for when we return.”
“It will be a fantastic base for us and a much needed improvement for the football club.
“It gets all the lads together in one place and gives them a chance to do a lot more work out on the pitch and gives them the chance to bond together.
“I’m looking forward to it being completed and for us to move there.”
The move to Sundourne Castle will mean the players will not be at the stadium other than on matchdays. This change of culture is something that Doigy believes will create the right environment to help the continued improvement from the squad.
“It will be our base if we look at it in a selfish way but it’s about creating the right environment”, said Chris.
“I think it’s important and for these days that’s the environment Shrewsbury Town should have.”
