Pre-season started on Saturday. Bang straight in with the "bleep test" then an intense hour of physical work before a 20 minute 11 a side match.
The pitch is looking in good order and the surrounding area, including some nice little touches, is looking superb.
The club welcomed back a number of players from last season's squad: Colin Larkin, John Jury, Stephen Callen, Michael Charlton, Tony Coe, Joe Hughes, Luke Richardson and Alex Smith.
We also extend a warm welcome to the following new signings: Jordan Harkess (Durham), Reece Noble (Durham), Adam Drysdale (Seaham Red Star), Chris Scott (Seaham Red Star) and Callum Hope (Durham City).
With more signings to follow as the management team look to strengthen the squad for the coming campaign.
