TOWN'S players are pedalling back to fitness.

The club have received four Dawes Shuniah mountain bikes worth £800 in a link-up with Colne Valley Cycles of Linthwaite.

Two will be used by the Academy and two by Peter Jackson's senior squad and were presented by keen fan Stephen McGuire, of Colne Valley Cycles (right).

Town physio Lee Martin (back right) said: "They are a great rehabilitation tool whereby players can get non-weight bearing exercise while they are still injured.

"Rather than going to the gym every day, the lads enjoy a cycle ride, so the bikes will be very useful."
