The squad will meet at Lakes College for a full day together, involving fitness tests, a classroom session, a short conditioning workout and a meal.

“I’d like to think most will have done a little work,” Woods said. “If they get decent results in testing they’ll get the first week of training off, so I expect them to turn up ready to go.

“They’ve been sent a weights programme, and with not being full-time, they will have to do a bit away from the club and take some responsibility.

“But they are all really keen and excited about getting started. They know there’s a bit of competition for places, so they have to make sure they work hard.”

Fans group Trust in Haven are to hold a race night at the Recre on Friday, at 8pm, to raise money to help improve the life of stand-off Jamie Rooney’s son Brennan.

The youngster suffered brain damage after he was born nine weeks premature in 2002, and at eight months old he was diagnosed with quadriplegic cerebral palsy.

Brennan’s therapist has suggested he have an iPad to stimulate his vision and memory skills, and his family hope to purchase a specially-adapted bike to enable him to enjoy riding out and open up his life a little.

The night will include entertainment from duo Cumbria Cocktails. Admission costs £3.



Should the Lakes become a World Heritage Site?

Of course. It's one of the world's most special places

No. It'll bring too many restrictions. It won't help anything

I'm still to be convinced. Need to know more about the benefits
