Last week, the England and Wales Cricket Board held a training camp with its England Men’s Test squad at St. George’s Park to help prepare the players for the summer ahead.

The three-day camp at the Staffordshire base saw the staff and players make use of the various facilities on-site, with team meetings, gym sessions and science and medicine check-ins taking place at the home of English football. 

The Jon Gittens Pitch also played host to a fitness session, with the squad taking on a series of sprint shuttle runs.

The England Men’s team has a busy summer season ahead, with Test matches and white-ball internationals against some of the sport’s top sides.

With the packed schedule on the horizon, Ben Langley, Medical Services Lead for the ECB, said: “We’ve been at St. George’s Park for the last two days, and have found the facilities to be world class. There’s no doubt it’s one of the best facilities in the country, and a change of venue to stimulate us as well as the setting and staff it’s been amazing. 

“We’ve been able to achieve a lot of elements with only a small walk away from each facility, and there’s no doubt that any sport - not just cricket - would benefit from coming here.”
