And plans have now been altered going forward, with Dyche cancelling a planned pre-season training camp in Austria in favour of stepping up the schedule at Barnfield.
He explained: “We had an away trip to Austria planned, which we use to as a psychological break and to break up the intensive training, but we’ve had to pull that through the quarantine rules, at this stage.
“Even if the players were allowed in the workplace, they couldn’t do much else, and it’s just a bit inhuman, after being away from their families for seven days, to say they could only come in here and do nothing else.
“In the end, there’s a couple of other clubs who were due to go to Austria who have made the same decision, and we’ve mentioned before about the quality of the building, the pitches and fantastic environment we have here, so it’s not exactly a major problem.”
