Bulgarian international striker Dimitar and highly-rated full-back Benoit kicked-off their pre-season preparations with fitness tests this afternoon.
Clive Allen's development squad were first up this morning and he was delighted to report excellent fitness levels from a group including the likes of Charlie Lee, Charlie Daniels and Kieran McKenna.
These are the first steps on the path Clive hopes will lead to a successful defence of the reserve league title won last season.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The younger group were the first lads to go out for the physical testing and theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve come back in great shape, which is good to see,Ã¢â‚¬Â reported Clive.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“They all did very well and there are a number of tests to see exactly where they are at in terms of fitness. That forms a base line to work from as pre-season progresses and the season gets underway.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The lads were great on their weights and they all know what football is about now, these are highly-tuned athletes and if they come back even a pound overweight they will struggle. They are professional, they look in good shape and theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve all done well on the tests.Ã¢â‚¬Â
