Gallery: The boys are back in town

For the majority of United's first-teamers, it was back to work this week as pre-season training began in earnest at Carrington.

The United lads have been doing a series of physical and mental tests to assess their fitness before the grunt work starts in the bid to get sharp for the new campaign.

The Reds, of course, head out on a tour of the US, Canada and Mexico on Monday, but their main aim this week has been to put in the groundwork for pre-season fitness.

Club snappers John and Matt Peters get exclusive access to training, and they've been at United's training headquarters capturing images of the lads in action. We've compiled a gallery of the best pics of the lads being put through their paces - and there's a new face at Carrington too.
