Paul Mullin was glad to have got his first training session as a Town player under his belt on the opening day of pre-season.
Fresh after signing for the club from Morecambe for an undisclosed fee on Tuesday, the striker joined up with his new team-mates and was put through his paces by Dave Flitcroft and his coaching staff.
“It was a tough one and the first one back is always tough after a long break, but I enjoyed it and it was nice to meet all of the lads,” Mullin told swindontownfc.co.uk exclusively.
“Everyone was working hard and hopefully it will come to fruition at the start of the season.
“We had a long warm-up then we went into a bit of running with four minute runs, constant sprinting and passing the ball.
“We then split off, did some possession work and at the end we did some strength and conditioning work, which was about twenty seconds each on ten stations twice through.
“It was quite difficult but I’m glad it is done now and the first day is out the way.
“Every first day of pre-season is always hard work no matter where you, so we always expect it.
“Everything is now gearing up for the first game of the season and getting yourself fit and ready for that.
“We had a great first day and everyone is together already.”
Mullin put pen to paper on a two-year deal with the club on Tuesday and the striker is hoping to excite The County Ground crowd throughout 2017/18.
“I love to play in-behind and I love having the ball, love exciting the crowd and I love running at people,” he added.
“Closing down is a big part of my game and getting the fans on their feet, whether it is with or without the ball.
“I want to try and get everyone happy, lift the crowd, lift the boys around me and drag them through sometimes.
“Goals are the biggest part of any forward’s game and hopefully I can score as many as I can.”
