New signing Dejan Stojanovic joined up with his new team-mates for the first team, being welcomed by Jonathan Woodgate before hitting the Rockliffe training pitches.

With a number of the first team doing a recovery session, the group on the pitches was bolstered by the inclusion of a number of our younger players.
