Matlock Town manager Paul Phillips was encouraged by what he saw on the squad’s return to training.
There were also a couple of new faces present as the Northern Premier Division side met up on Tuesday evening.
Speaking to the club’s website, Gladiators boss Phillips said:
“We had a great turnout and it was a great session.
“It was good to see all of the lads again and everything went to plan. We had a couple of new lads there who both did really well.”
