Sheedy blown away by new training facility

Callum Sheedy has hailed the club’s new state-of-the-art training ground as a ‘steppingstone to success’ after the Bears began stage two of their return to play process last week.

'World Class facility'

Pat Lam’s squad made the move to the Failand facility on Monday, July 6th before beginning contact training two days later – and Sheedy says the squad have been blown away their new headquarters.

“We want to be at the top of Europe and this World Class facility is definitely a nice steppingstone to doing that,” he said.

“I remember seeing it when it was being built; you see a few pictures of it and you think: ‘that’s good’, but when you actually step foot in it, you can’t put into words how good it actually is.”

'New faces'

The Bears number ten also praised the impact of the squad’s newest arrivals, with Kyle Sinckler, Semi Radradra, Max Malins, Ben Earl, Mitch Eadie and Chris Cook having already linked up with their new teammates

“Rugby is strange – you see some good friends leave but then you’ve got new boys coming in who have definitely added value,” he continued.

“World class talent on the pitch and then some great coaches coming in who we are learning from already. The new boys have settled in really well, they’ve come into the culture and the Bears way, and it’s as if they’ve been here for years – they’ve fitted in really well.

'Ready for the restart'

“Being in training, still in small groups, it feels a little bit more normal and we’re so excited to get back to Ashton Gate, and in time, in front of the crowd whenever that is allowed.

“But the biggest thing is gearing up towards that Premiership return and making sure we’re ready to go whenever the restart is.”
