The bad weather always brings the challenge of what to do with the players for training when playing surfaces are covered in snow.

Quite often it's a trip to the gymnasium for an intensive cardiovascular workout or for those fortunate enough to have access to sizeable indoor facilities, there is the opportunity for a small sided game. The challenge most coaching staff face is what they do to keep the training interesting, varied and equally beneficial for the players, after a prolonged spell of snow.

For Tranmere Rovers Manager Les Parry, the answer was simple - an hour long dance class.

The Rovers players haven't been able to kick a ball in anger outside due to the adverse conditions in the North West of the country so they have been looking for different ways to keep on top of things ahead of Saturday's - weather permitting - trip to Exeter City.

After a warm-up, Tranmere Rovers In The Community's new dance instructor Frankie Wasley taught the players an Usher routine before they were given the chance for a spot of freestyling at the end.

Rovers boss Parry explained to "We've had to come up with different ways of keeping the players fit while everywhere is frozen and this was a fantastic session from Frankie.

"The players all seemed to really enjoy doing something a bit out of the ordinary and I'm sure her classes will go down really well in local schools."
