Wolves fullback Foley expects grueling preseason Perth tour

Wolves fullback Kevin Foley is expecting a grueling preseason tour of Perth, Australia this summer. Wolves will play two games, against 'A' League side Perth Glory on July 10 and a Western Australia state select side five days later, as they start preparations in earnest for what will hopefully be a Premier League campaign.

Foley said: "It's a nice one to look forward to, but then you've got (fitness coach) Tony Daley with his whistle and his stopwatch!

"I think we'll need to take our sick bags."

Talking of sick bags, Wolves also face a gruelling 24-hour flight - and Foley revealed several players aren't too keen on flying.

The 24-year-old told the Express & Star: "I know Karl Henry doesn't like flying. It's funny, looking around the plane when you're about to take off, you can see a few of the lads starting to pray and you don't want to say too much to them!

"It's quite cruel, but I'm sure it will be all right."
