West Ham United's first-team squad have stepped up their training at Rush Green, following the Premier League clubs’ unanimous vote to move to Stage Two of the Return to Training Protocol earlier this week.

That means that players at all 20 Premier League clubs are able to work together as a full group, while still minimising any unnecessary close contact.

The Hammers squad have recently been training in small groups at Rush Green but have now been able to work on the pitches as a fuller squad, while some members of David Moyes' squad continue to work to individually tailored programmes. 

The Club, its medical and operations team have put many measures in place that go above and beyond the Government and Premier League recommendations to ensure that Rush Green can be as safe as it can possibly be, including health screening and temperature tents for players and staff upon entry at Rush Green, disinfecting of training equipment and footballs, and players arriving and departing in their own kit.
