NEW Saints boss Kristian Woolf has got his first week of pre-season training under his belt with the senior players - bar those on international duty - back in the fold.

The champions got back to the hard graft of pre-season training last week, with the core of senior players joining the young squad members.

There are obviously still some notable absentees, with Great Britain tourists Lachlan Coote, Jonny Lomax, Alex Walmsley and Luke Thompson, Welsh international Regan Grace, Fiji skipper Kevin Naiqama and Cook Islands World Cup qualifier Dom Peyroux taking an extended break.
