The Blackpool players get to work on some fitness tests

The players have been busy taking part in some fitness tests after returning for the first time since their Wembley triumph against Exeter City, which came exactly a month ago today.

Pre-season training was put back for a couple of days due to the club's League Two play-off campaign.

Preparations will now get underway for the club's return to League One, which starts on Saturday, August 5 with a trip to last season's beaten play-off finalists Bradford City.
