Premier League clubs returned to training this past Tuesday to start phase 1 of Project Restart. 748 Players and staff had been tested the Sunday before which resulted in 6 positive tests. Those individuals are now self-quarantining.

Newcastle’s club doctor Paul Catterson revealed on Friday that Newcastle did not have any positive tests.

The league will meet at some point next week to make a decision on moving to phase 2, which will involve contact training. With the players and staff being tested twice a week, it’s going to be critical that there’s not an uptick in positive tests for the next phase to get approved.

But they’ve been as safe as possible under phase 1 having four to five players isolated on a pitch. The staff has also worn personal protective equipment when interacting with the players. So hopefully the next round of tests will not see an increase in positive cases.

The Mirror has published some comments from Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles on the return to training.

This is what a motivated Lascelles had to say:

“We are ready to go. We are still motivated and have nine games to finish off.

“It has been strange seeing the staff with personal protective equipment stuff on.

“It is four to a pitch so we have social distancing. It is strange but definitely nice to get things going again.

“It has been tough being away, but there are people losing their lives and in worse situations. We have kept fit, stuck to the program and I have had quality time with my son.”

For Newcastle, it’s been a positive first week back and it’s great to start seeing and hearing from the lads again. Fingers crossed that it all continues to go well.
