Boss Gavin Cowan has hailed both the fitness and togetherness of his AFC Telford United charges.
The Bucks began pre-season last week, with several trialists joining the 15 tied down for the upcoming campaign.
And former defender Cowan – gearing up for his first season in management – was glad to see everyone report in tip-top shape.
“They’re really good. The squad has come back very fit and eager,” he said.
“They did a session on Tuesday, Wednesday and a double session on Saturday, doing a lot of strength and conditioning work.
“Every player is different and will excel in different areas – some stand out in fitness, some with the ball work.
“It’s about catering to everyone, and it makes it so much easier as a manager when everyone comes back in good shape.”
Among those aiming to win Telford terms are Market Drayton Town duo Joe Cuff and Jud Ellis.
Former fan favourite Dwayne Samuels has also been training after taking a year-long break from the game.
