“The club is in a great position despite all the difficulties Covid presented to us last year.

“We have a really good team behind the scenes, who have worked tirelessly to prepare for the new season under the most difficult of circumstances.

“Dyllan is currently in quarantine for 10 days, so will join up with the players next week.
