The Boro boss worked his players hard as they returned to pre-season action on Tuesday night and he insists there’s more to come.

“It was great to be back out on the training pitch with the players, who I have to say I was very impressed with,” said Kelly.

“It was a gruelling session and they will only get tougher going forward too. But I was really happy with the players.

“You could tell they have been looking after themselves during this period off, their application, attitude and application throughout the session on Tuesday was fantastic and I want to see that continue, starting at Thursday’s session.”

Kelly is away from Saturday, but has faith in coaches David Brown, Jimmy Beadle and Ryan Blott to run the sessions in his absence.

“David will oversee the sessions while I’m away and I have every faith in him and the rest of the coaching team,” added the Boro manager.

“Everything is laid out for them to get cracking and I expect the players to continue working hard as we start to prepare for friendlies and the North Riding Cup semi-final.

“There are a few more players to come in for sessions and we’re still working hard to add to the squad.”

Kelly was also quick to sing the praises of his medical team of Darren Foreman, Leah Ager and Becky Cox.

“I want to thank the medical team of Darren, Leah and Becky for their superb efforts at Tuesday’s session and also in the lead up to it, making sure everything was good to go and the players were OK to train,” added Kelly.

“I have to say they were so thorough and professional with what they did and that was very pleasing for me.”
