Alex Loney says the Fylde players have been trusted to stay fit over Christmas

“We do need them to keep ticking over but we trust the players to do the work they need to without having to come in for training all the time.

“The key is to come back in the New Year in the right mental and physical state for the second half of the season.

“The longer mid-season break means we are not scheduled to play again until January 8 (away to Loughborough Students), so hopefully we won’t have the disruption we’re seeing in sports trying to play over Christmas.”

Fylde stand fifth in National Two North at the halfway point in their season.
