#PremierLeagueStories – Burnley #BurnleyFC release a statement as #PL clubs given green light for contact training
Premier League clubs have voted unanimously to resume contact training as ‘Project Restart’ took a giant step forwards. After starting with small, socially-distanced training sessions, players and managers from the 20 top-flight clubs were briefed on proposals for the reintroduction of contact training on Tuesday. The matter was voted on the following day by Premier League shareholders and has been given the green light as a mid-June return edges closer.
Burnley said in a statement: “Burnley Football Club fully supports the Premier League’s move to sanction contact and group training for players. The Clarets will now adapt the strict protocols currently in operation at their Barnfield Training Centre to allow Sean Dyche’s squad to move forward to the next phase of their preparations for a planned return to football.”
