Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours
Everton players test out their coaching skills.
“When I first came I was between 74kg and 75kg and now I’m sitting around at 80kg. I’ve worked really hard in the gym and I made sure I spent the time I’ve been out injured wisely in that respect. I’m up to where I want to be and it’s about maintaining it now. Me, Davo [Tom Davies] and Dwighty [Dwight McNeil] have got a wee gym club going at Finch Farm, working on different aspects and making sure we’re all ticking over to be in the best possible shape. The work is every day. You have to make the most of every day,” says fullback Nathan Patterson. [EFC]
