Pic Special: All In For Pre-Season

Since Wednesday, United's players have slowly been returning to their Benton-based Training Centre in small groups for medical testing and examinations.

However, on Saturday morning they were back in as one big group as pre-season training kicked-off properly in the summer heat on the Costa del Tyneside.

The only players missing were those who have been on international duty during the close season, but manager Alan Pardew and his coaching staff oversaw the rest of the group, including new signing, 16-year-old Olivier Kemen.

Unsurprisingly, there was plenty of fitness and conditioning work for the Magpies' stars, but they also got to do some work with the footballs too, before heading for an afternoon boxing session.
