Staff Play Prank On Players Over Lunch

6 July 2015

While some of the players may have been fearing the worst ahead of a gruelling week of Army training the mood was lightened by a lunch-time prank on Day One!

The Pools squad were put through their paces with a timed run and testing circuit in their first session upon arrival before breaking for lunch just after midday.

However, Army staff handed out paper bags containing just a small sandwich and a bottle of water – telling the players that this is what they eat on a daily basis and they should get used to it.

Thankfully, it was all a harmless wind-up and the frowns soon turned to smiles as the players realised they had been tricked and that a proper meal had been prepared for them!

Check out our gallery now for some priceless expressions from the lads as the food was handed out!
