Hull City’s preparations for the 2021/22 Sky Bet Championship campaign began in earnest on Monday as the players reported for the first day of pre-season training.
Last season’s League One title-winning squad, along with new additions Nathan Baxter, Andy Cannon, George Moncur and Randell Williams, were at the Tigers’ Cottingham training base nice and early for their first drills of the summer.
It was an unseasonably chilly opening morning but the players were soon working up a sweat as they were put through their paces by Head Coach Grant McCann and his staff, while the footballs also came out as the players got their touch back in check.
The squad will now head up to Scotland for a training camp before returning home at the weekend.
