Excitement grows

22 June 2015

Blades boss Nigel Adkins is tipping an exciting season for the Bramall Lane faithful to enjoy in 2015/16.

Speaking after the Capital One Cup draw and announcement of United's Sky Bet League One schedule last week, Adkins has revealed planning and preparations have increased.

United's campaign will begin with an away double header against Gillingham in the league, followed by a cup clash at Morecambe during the following midweek, but the manager hasn't let that dent his enthusiasm.

"We've already started planning the campaign, as a group of staff," Adkins remarked.

"I started in football at the age of 16, so I've had a lot of pre-seasons and fixture announcements, but that excitement doesn't fade.

"It's exciting for the fans, of course, as they know where they'll start the season and they can plan their away trips and the like. But it's exciting for us, too. We've already started looking at travelling, hotels and training schedules for away trips."

The Gaffer added: "When you factor in the FA Cup, Capital One Cup and Johnstone's Paint Trophy, there's a lot of football to be played and we're excited to get started."

The players are scheduled to return to pre-season training next week.
