Squad start pre-season programme

Boys back out on the training field...

23 June 2017

After seven long weeks away, the MK Dons squad were back at Woughton on Friday to begin their pre-season training programme ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.

The men from MK1 were put through their paces by Head of Sports Science John Hill with a number of intense running drills, while Robbie Neilson and his backroom team ensured their feet remained on the pedal with a series of tough technical drills.

Scott Wootton was a stand-out participant, taking part in every drill in his first session back from a long-term knee injury. Chuks Aneke, meanwhile, worked off to the side with Head of Sports Medicine Simon Crampton as he continues his rehabilitation from a hamstring problem.

New first-team addition Conor McGrandles and first-year pros Hugo Logan and Sam Nombe were also among those involved in the session, along with a handful of trialists who will be looking to catch the eye during their time with the Club.

Peter Pawlett and Joe Walsh will join in training at a later date after a late end to their 2016/17 seasons – Pawlett with Aberdeen and Walsh because of international duty with Wales.

Today was the first of many tough days for the Dons in the build-up to their Sky Bet League One opener with Wigan Athletic on Saturday 5th August - make sure to stick with mkdons.com, iFollow MK Dons and the Club’s social media accounts for exclusive coverage of pre-season.
