Hear from Head of Elite Performance Ed Franklin as he discusses how the team are tracking during pre-season and the impact of the Science in Sport supplements.

With pre-season well under way we caught up with Head of Elite Performance Ed Franklin to discuss pre-season to date, the goals for Season 2017/18 and how the partnership with Science in Sport is boosting the team!

"Can we go to the next level, that's the manager's mantra at the moment" said Franklin. "Can we get that extra one percent out of the players nutritionally to help them perform?

"We've got a really good bunch of players, a tight knit group who want to work hard and achieve something again this year. It helps massively when you've got a really good vibe around the training ground and young hungry players coming through. For us as support staff, when the players are in a good mood, it's like with anyone, when they're in a good mood you can get the best out of them!

"With SiS we're able to deliver products that actually taste good. Human beings are fickle, if it tastes good they'll eat it. That really helps us, whether it's a gel, protein powder, hydration tablet, there's always a variety of flavours that suits everyone!

"With the use of SiS products hopefully we can go one step further this year and get into the Premier League!"
