Newcastle club doctor Paul Catterson has spoken about the squad's return to training and says there has been excitement among Steve Bruce's players.

The club began phase one of training on Tuesday along with the other 19 Premier League sides as plans to resume the season under 'Project Restart' got underway.

The Magpies returned negative coronavirus test results for all players and staff and Catterson admitted it had put people more at ease with returning.

Newcastle doctor Paul Catterson says there has been excitement over their return to training

'There was a general relief when everyone found that out,' he told Sky Sports.

'We have got to rule against complacency and remain vigilant in all of this to keep that good work going.

'It just takes one or two results coming out to cause a bit of worry in the group.

'Different players have different worries about it so it's about trying to reassure them and show them that we are trying to be as safe as possible.

'There's a little bit of excitement [at training] because it looks like we are on the right track and football will hopefully be restarting again.'

Contact training will be in the second phase of sessions with players currently limited in what they can do under social distancing measures. 

The doctor admitted there would be challenges facing the club if and when matches return next month but said the players have kept themselves in good shape during the enforced break.

'Each phase is bringing new challenges and we are trying to pre-empt what some of those might be.

Catterson said that the players returned in a great mood and have kept themselves in shape

'There's a nervousness around what the games might look like but also about our travel and accommodation. 

'It has been surreal times but I am amazed by the players and they have certainly come back in a great mood.

'They have kept themselves in very good shape and there some who have been flying [in training] in the last couple of days.'
