Pre-season – when foundations are laid
So you’ve coached, guided and nurtured your team through the season, with its vast catalogue of highs and lows. Perhaps you’ve won a title, captured domestic or international trophies, or clinched a hard-earned promotion to a higher division. Maybe you’ve masterminded recovery and survival from a seemingly hopeless position, and avoided relegation against all the odds. You’ve coped with myriad internal and external pressures, and come through the other side. Well-earned rest and recreation beckons – but the next campaign is already looming on the horizon… and preparations for the new season lie in wait around the corner.
