What a week to have been touring the country in glorious sunshine. Mostly in the Midlands and Northwest, we’ve been talking to clubs as they start to consider what they’ll need to hit the ground running next season.

It’s always hard to think about your next campaign when there’s still so much undecided in this one, but those who are able to spend time on the development of their performance teams in the time between the transfer window closing and the start of pre-season training are the ones most likely to be set up for success.

Just as it’s important for us to refresh our knowledge of the different environments, cultures and team dynamics of the clubs we work with, however well we think we know them. Looking forward to London next week, hope it’s just as sunny.
