Players and coaching staff from Sporting Khalsa last night (Thursday) prepared for tomorrow’s FA Cup Fourth Round Qualifying game with FC United of Manchester by training at Wolverhampton Wanderer’s facilities at Compton.

The invitation from the Wolves to help us prepare for the game was a magnificent gesture and is much appreciated by everybody at Sporting Khalsa.

Manager Ian Rowe said: “We were really delighted to have the opportunity to use the facilities at Wolves, which are generally regarded as some of the best around, ahead of the big game.

“Our preparation for the match is much the same as normal but having the chance to experience something like this is a touch of class to the whole thing.

“Thanks to the Wolves for letting us train, it’s a really nice gesture on their part and they treated us like kings. Paul Berry at the club and his colleagues really are a credit to the name Wolverhampton Wanderers. I know Lee Wherton, our captain, and Tim Jackson, our full-back were particularly chuffed!”

The players had a guided tour of the Compton facilities and had the chance to meet Wolves players Aaron McCarey and Jed Wallace before being put through their paces on the club’s indoor 3g pitch.

Once again, everybody at Sporting Khalsa would like to thank Wolverhampton Wanderers for their gesture, it was much, much appreciated.
