Boss Graham Alexander told the club’s website: “Obertraun is a brilliant football camp, which I’m used to.

“I’ve been lucky enough to go there many times, both as a player and as a coach, and I think it’s the perfect base for a team.

“It’s remote, there are no distractions, but everything you need to prepare for a full season. The only focus is fitness, football and team spirit.”
