DESPITE the big freeze putting paid to the Moors’ last few games, work is carrying on behind the scenes, insists assistant manager Paul Wanless.
Not only are the players training regularly, but the management are also working hard to bring in players to bolster Solihull’s small squad.
“The players have been excellent and we’ve told them each week to continue as normal and prepare as if the game is definitely going ahead,” said Wanless.
In fact, so dedicated have staff and players been during this cold snap, nearly all have turned up for every training session - with only Wednesday’s workout being cancelled because of the dangerous conditions.
Wanless, who himself is snowed in where he lives in Oxford, said that the players were having to train indoors and others were taking advantage of their own gym membership.
The difficult travelling conditions have also hindered the Moors’ attempts to recruit new players, with no ins or outs yet in the new year.
“We’re moving on a number of options,” said Wanless. “But there is nothing official yet.”
“It’s quite difficult at the moment because a lot of people are cut off - but we’ll keep trying.”
l All football pitches in Solihull Council’s parks will be closed this weekend.
Due to the snow and ice no one will be able to make use use the pitches on January 9 and 10.
