Macclesfield Town players and coaching staff reported back for pre-season training this morning and although there were many introductions to be made, the spirit in the camp was incredibly vibrant even from day one.
Mark Yates was first to arrive, as he meticulously prepared to conduct his first training session as our Manager and he was followed by his assistants Danny Whitaker and Neil Howarth – both of whom were clearly eager to get started.
One by one, the players arrived with beaming smiles on their faces and a willingness to give there all right from the start.
The defiance which characterised the successes of last season remains in abundance, as the squad lay the foundations for what promises to be another epic season at the Moss Rose.
Despite the heat, each and every player gave their all and that in itself was no mean feat in such blistering temperatures.
We may well have only just started back, but there is no doubt that we have certainly hit the ground running!
We will be bringing you interviews and photo galleries documenting the squad's return throughout the week here at www.mtfc.co.uk
