POULTON based Gym Etc came to the rescue of AFC Fylde for the second time in recent months when they provided their facilities for a training session.

The national operated fitness facility allowed the club’s players to train on Monday morning when the training ground proved unusable due to the weather.

Manager Dave Challinor and assistant Colin Woodthorpe put the players through their paces on the gym equipment at the Garstang Road facility.

Challinor said: “I’d like to thank Gym Etc for everything they provided this week for the club at the training session and we hope to be able to develop the relationship further.

“Fitness plays a key part in our preparations and as we move forward and continue our progression, this is very important.”
