Town to Huddle

Last updated : 18 July 2006 By Sam Davidson

De Vos told the Club website: "We talked about it as a group and somebody suggested introducing the pre-match huddle that quite a few clubs use these days.

"We get together as a group on the pitch and talk through what's coming up. The idea is that it helps to completely focus the mind before kick-off.

"It's about everybody taking responsibility. It's no use me or Richard Naylor or Nicky Forster or whoever simply giving instructions. Everybody will have a turn addressing the group during the season.

"For some of the younger lads it will be an important process in helping them to come out of themselves a little bit and giving them a bit more confidence."
