Pic Special: Monday Funday

Fun is rarely associated with pre-season training, but United's stars certainly enjoyed the first of Monday's double session at their Benton headquarters.

Under the watchful eye of manager Alan Pardew, the squad first went through a circuit of a variety of drills which included strength and conditioning work on mats, co-ordination and a bit of light ball work.

And once that was done they contested a number of small-sided matches, with possession the aim of the game. It was a far cry from the old days of non-stop running during pre-season, and the players were delighted to see the footballs out as they start to up their fitness levels ahead of the new campaign.

Capturing it all for an exclusive gallery of images was Club Photographer Ian Horrocks.
