Newboys Leandro Bacuna, Niklas Helenius and Antonio Luna were straight into the action at Bodymoor Heath on their first day of training.

Check out the newboys in training action.

Bacuna, Helenius and Luna arrived early and quickly changed into their new Macron training wear before heading out on to the fields.

Their new adventure began with fitness work under Michael Watts and Chris Lorkin as they warmed-up ahead of football sessions later on.

Then it was over to Ian Culverhouse, Gary Karsa and Scott Marshall as they showed off their skills, with Paul Lambert watching on.

The word "quality" could be heard at regular intervals as the trio of lieutenants demanded high standards from the trio of eager aces.

Lambert revealed afterwards that he had had a chat with senior players before training to ensure the newboys were made to feel extra welcome on their first day.

He said: "We had a chat this morning with the group and said even though there are some lads still missing, the lads that were already here should try and make the new lads feel welcome.

"It is a strange environment for all of the new guys. They will hit the ground running and once they start to integrate with each other then they will not have a problem."
