Tranmere Rovers team captain Tom Davies is ‘very excited’ to get going ahead of his side’s season opener against Barrow at Prenton Park this Saturday (3pm kick-off).
Davies spoke about how tough pre-season has been, but how much of a better shape it has meant the squad is in going into the game.
“There are no injuries at the minute, touch wood, it’s an exciting time and we’re all looking forward to it.
“The first two and a half, three weeks was just getting the fitness in the legs, a lot of miles. Then the more technical, tactical stuff comes in as we get nearer to Barrow.”
The defender also touched on the additions to the squad this summer and the benefit they have had on the team.
“When you sign players like we have who’ve been there and done it and the level, it’s something that you hope they bring to the changing room.
"We’ve signed really well this summer, I still think there’ll be a bit more movement, but it’s a case now of us showing out on the pitch what we’re all about and that’s what a Tranmere team should be doing, they should be up there.”
