Changes paying off for Greg Halford


Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Greg Halford has revealed that he has changed his entire lifestyle in a bid to forge a successful future at Molineux.

The 25-year-old seemed set to be allowed to move on by Wolves boss Mick McCarthy this summer, but Halford has impressed during pre-season games after taking a long look at how he was preparing himself.

He told the Express & Star:"Hopefully I can be like a new signing this season.

"My problem is I've always done just enough. But I needed to look at everything – fitness, diet, sleeping and drinking.

"I began seeing our sports psychologist Bill Stevens towards the end of last season to get my head right.

"Maybe I haven't always had my head in the right place, but then I haven't been at a club long enough to feel settled.

"I've gone completely teetotal and I felt the difference straight away. We had a night out in Ireland after the Bohemians game and I got a bit of stick from the lads over why I wasn't drinking. But it's something that I have to do.

"The drinking wasn't a problem, but I felt going teetotal and eating well was the right thing to do.

"I've also had meetings with the nutritionist because, although I didn't feel my diet was bad, everything can be improved.

"I'm not going to stop – everything I'm doing will be in place for the rest of the season and, hopefully, the rest of my career."
