The Chelsea Women players and some staff have this week returned to Cobham to begin small group training, in line with the FA’s Return to Training Protocol and UK Government guidelines on social distancing.

On Monday, Emma Hayes and her squad were reunited for the first time in five months following the termination of the 2019/20 Barclays Women’s Super League campaign due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In compliance with stage one of the Return to Training Protocol, the players trained in small groups, focusing on fitness and without contact while maintaining social distancing.

As preparations for our 2020/21 season get under way, we have selected some photos for you to enjoy…
