BOSTON Town are hoping to gain an edge on their United Counties League Premier Division rivals - with support from Glasgow Rangers.

Joint Poachers manager Matt Hocking has used his connections in the game to get his hands on the Scottish club’s pre-season workout schedule.

He said: “I’ve done the workout before and it’s the fittest I’ve ever been for the start of a season. Hopefully, we can all be the same this year.”

Hocking, an ex-Hull City and Sheffield United player, came across the routine while at Southport.

The techniques were being administered by then-boss Peter Davenport and assistant Huw Griffiths, a UEFA A licence holder, who was given the regime by Rangers’ fitness staff.

Now Hocking has got himself a copy and is putting the squad through their paces.

“It’s mainly based around running - sprints to make everyone sharp,” he added.

Rangers may be having financial problems, but the regime helped them be one of the Scottish Premier League’s dominant forces in recent years.
