Blue & Glen men work together
boss Paul Millar gave the club’s full-time duo Gary Hamilton
and Phillip Simpson a good kicking yesterday.
The pair underwent an intensive training session conducted by former
two-time Irish league winner with the Blues. Young Gun recently
scored with his first title win for the Celtic Super welterweight
WKN title last month at the Park Ave hotel.
The Glentoran manager Millar, was keen to get his full-timers back
to basics, he had this to say:
“I wanted something different for the players again this season,
especially the full-time players - I saw an improvement in their
fitness last time the boys where at ProKick,” he went on to
“I asked Billy about the possibility of training players and
he put the whole thing together without a fuss. I really enjoyed
the session last time out and the players did too. There is a fun
side to it too but I think the players knew by the end of the hour
they had been through a good routine.
“It’s a long-term thing I’m looking at. I want
to add variety to training and I know kickboxing will give the players
a different kind of fitness and interest.”
