The Pilgrims hit the training field for the first time this season
2 July 2019
The first full day of training camp has concluded as the Pilgrims had a very productive first session under new boss Michael Carrick. For the vast majority of the players this was a time to start focusing on the return and for those new start to gel with their new teammates.
After some light conditioning and drills in the morning, the afternoon was all about an intrasquad game behind closed doors. The players split up into two teams which allowed the coaching staff to evaluate the players on conditioning and how the starting eleven could shape up in preseason.
The Plymouth A team in the orange bibs were able to beat the B team in white by a score of 4-2.
Newly signed Dominic Telford was the main man for the A Squad scoring two of the four goals. For the B Squad 20 year old Alex Fletcher was able to score two of his own. Despite this being only an intrasquad the coaches were able to watch a great show. George Cooper and Ryan Taylor also scored for A Team.
"I was really pleased to see how well things were on day one, I might be getting ahead of myself but the hard work shown today is a telling sign for the season, hopefully this continues as we become one as a team."

The players will be training over the next two days before heading out for their first preseason match against MK Dons.
Kick-off is set for a 3PM start on Saturday, July 6 at Stadium MK.
