"The players will go through a series of testing on Thursday and Friday and then we will see where we are at,” said Brady.

“Pre-season training starts in earnest on Monday and it will be a tough six weeks for us. We will be fit and as prepared as we can be come the first game, we are really looking forward to it and personally, I can't wait to do what I feel I do best, which is to get out on the training pitch coaching.

"Players nowadays report back for pre-season fitter than ever and that's what we are expecting when we get the group together. They have had their summer programmes to follow and we expect them to report back in good shape, ready to start to fight for a starting berth in the team."
