The exams are in full flow and the summer is upon us. For many young players it is time to rest, but getting the right nutrition is still important.

The off-season is a time for relaxing and taking a break both physically and mentally from the stress of the season.

It is really important that you take advantage of this time, to give your body a chance to be recharged for the beginning of next season.
