"Gone are the days when players bowl in ten kilos overweight. They come back in good condition. We have a very professional bunch as you would imagine here, and they've all got benchmarks that they'll come back with."

Strudwick ready for players

anticipation of the squad's return in early July before they fly to South Africa, China and Norway.

"I think we have a template that we're quite comfortable with, that we've discussed over the last four or five years," says Strudwick. "Obviously when Manchester United put a tour together it's a big operation, so these plans have been ongoing since the turn of the year.

"A great deal of effort has gone into putting this tour and putting pre-season together, so it's not just a case of coming back on the 2nd of July, having ten sessions and going and playing a game - there's a lot of work that goes into it."
