Matty English discusses the Club’s first week back in training

Foster Care

With the first week of pre-season training now well underway, caught up with Matty English to reflect on a breakthrough 2018 season and see how the squad have been getting on.

“Pre-season is always going to be tough,” English said.

“We’re only two days in and it’s been pretty hard so far, but I’m looking forward to getting back out on the field and building on what I achieved last year.

“I didn’t expect to play so many games at the start of last year so, obviously, I was delighted and my family were buzzing.

“Hopefully I can make even more appearances this year and have a big impact on the team.”

The young prop, who will turn 21-years-old next week, admitted that the Giants have big ambitions for 2019.

“We must start well this year because we want to be in the big games at the end of the season. 

“Win want to win something and we’ve set clear goals, so we’re going to try our hardest to work towards them.”

After the fixtures were released on Tuesday, it was revealed that the Giants will start their 2019 campaign at home to Salford Red Devils, Friday 1st February. 

And, with Adults Season Cards available for just £139, English has urged the fans to get behind the team and join them for what promises to be an exciting season.

“Hopefully we can get a big home crowd behind us and begin the season with a win. 

“We’ve got a great stadium and facilities and I think it’s the best value in Super League.

“I’m really looking forward to seeing plenty of people there, and if we can create a good atmosphere it will really help to get the boys going.

“The fans can expect a big start this season. We’re going to bring a more exciting, free-flowing brand of rugby with plenty of energy in defence.”
