Sunderland youngster impress coaches during Austrian training camp
Sunderland coach Elliot Dickman has been impressed with the club's young stars in pre-season so far

Sunderland Under-23s boss Elliot Dickman is delighted with what he has seen from his players in the opening week of pre-season training, praising the youngsters work ethic.
Dickman has been with the squad this week in Austria who are undergoing a demanding training camp working with new Sunderland manager Simon Grayson and his assistant Glynn Snodin.

The Under 23s squad, who reached the Premier League International Cup final last season, have been training alongside their senior team-mates in addition to some of the Under-18s players who have also travelled to Central Europe.


And Dickman has been impressed with the work effort and progression of the players so far this week.
“It’s fantastic to be here with the first team and the facilities are great,” he told safc.com
“The players have had a tough few days with a lot of running, but the point of coming here is to get ready for what’s ahead and make sure we’re prepared for the season.
“They’ve been pleased with the way our players have coped and they’re all very approachable, so that’s pleasing and our players have to make sure they keep doing the basics but keep doing them very well.
“We’ve had several lads go and train with the first team which is great for them as it’s given them some exposure to the new manager and his staff.”

Youngsters Sam Brotherton, Elliot Embleton and Joel Asoro will also return to training this week at the Academy of Light with some of the Under-18s also travelling to Austria.
“There are some lads who have stepped up to our group from the under-18s and speaking to the lads they’ve said this pre-season is tougher than last year which shows we’re pushing them,” Dickman added.
“You would expect that progression in any young player’s career path but the biggest thing they’ve shown me in the last few days is a real desire and a good work ethic.”

Brotherton, Embleton and Asoro have had an extended rest due to their summer schedule away with their respective countries.
“They’ve had a bit of a rest now because they’d had a busy summer, but they have all had three great – but very different – experiences”, said Dickman,

“Elliot went away with England and played a lot of football while winning a tournament which is great for his development, and Joel has been away with Sweden under-21s.
“Sam didn’t get any minutes at all but to be away with the New Zealand senior side for the Confederations Cup in Russia is unbelievable.
“They’ll be back in on Wednesday for fitness testing with some of the staff who are still at the academy, and then they’ll start their fitness programmes.”

Fine by me, I wanted afresh new start by the club with the clearing of the decks and signing hungry young lads. The club has to get out of the cycle it was in. Its a start to better things but could take years a price worth paying imo.
