Eight new players were among the squad and Paul Cooper took the session.

The high number that turned up prompted manager Peter Kearvell to get the squad playing a game, warming the players up nicely heading into upcoming friendlies.

In their first friendly the Dean hosted Clanfield from the Hampshire League, who were well into their pre-season programme and ran out 4-0 winners.

Many new faces were introduced into the Dean line-up and positives could be taken.

The Dean did have opportunities but were not clinical enough and they missed a penalty.

This Saturday East Dean host a Football for Cancer charity team (3pm).
