There’s a peaceful revolution quietly spreading through West Bromwich Albion’s training ground this season.
More and more players are starting their working days trying to balance their yin and yang on the yoga mat with Tamworth teacher Lee Canterbury-Evans.
Last season, 47-year-old Lee would only get three of four players to each of his sessions – held every Tuesday and Thursday before training.
But word is spreading, the classes are growing, and a lot of the new faces are Albion’s summer signings. It’s always been a voluntary session, but there’s one player in particular who is there week in, week out.
“Craig Dawson has been doing it for about five years,” revealed Lee. “You can tell because he’s never had a strain, or a hamstring problem. It’s a preventative tool and because he got on top of it, it’s spread through the dressing room.”
