NUFC release photos of Howe, 11 players, new kits & forgotten loanee on day one of pre-season

It’s the first day of pre-season training on Tyneside, with Eddie Howe and a host of Newcastle players spotted back at the Benton base this morning.

There’ll still be plenty of absentees – international players like Sven Botman, Bruno Guimaraes and Fabian Schar have been given an extended break and remain on holiday – however it’s great to see some of the lads back in action after several weeks away.

Kell Watts has returned from his promotion-winning loan spell with Wigan fresh from signing a new contract, while Eddie Howe and others are pictured wearing the new training kits produced by Castore.

The squad arrived around 8am, with this year’s pre-season plan beginning five days earlier than this time last year – a clear indication of Howe’s high expectations given the 2021/22 season ended a week later than usual.

Here’s all the players we’ve spotted in the photos released by the club so far today, followed by some shots of the lads in action:

Dan Burn, Jamaal Lascelles, Paul Dummett, Kell Watts, Jonjo Shelvey, Joe Willock, Joelinton, Jacob Murphy, Ryan Fraser, Allan-Saint-Maximin, Callum Wilson.
