    We were quite literally (ie not at all literally) on fire after last year's Swiss training. Unlike Pards, Nigel took it VERY seriously and we slayed everyone. A repeat of that would be great, thanks.
    Slayed everyone? Not quite, a late Oxo stunner gained us a 3-3 draw in the first match in Biel.

    That little pointless trivia aside, though, it'll hopefully give some of us a good reason to struggle down to the border again.

    Can anyone remember when it is likely to happen?"

Nigel's Swiss role



First published in Saints News

Saints are set to repeat their pre-season preparations for last season’s glorious promotion campaign ahead of their hotly anticipated return to the Premier League.

The Daily Echo understands that Nigel Adkins will take his men to Switzerland for the third year in a row as they build-up for a top flight return.

The Swiss trip is expected to take the format of more than a week of training punctuated with two friendly games against opposition of increasing levels of quality.

Saints are also likely to return to the Champney’s health spa they attended last summer as part of their pre-season fitness regime.

Though some supporters were expecting Saints to partake in a glamorous foreign trip due to their promotion, the return to Switzerland should come as no real surprise.
