Neil Cox confirmed that the 24-year-old has been in light training after recovering from the knee operation that he required at the end of last season.
Francomb (pictured at Sunday’s victory parade) is currently being put through his paces by AFC Wimbledon Sports Scientist Jason Moriarty.
“George is doing the warm-ups, but he’s not yet able to join in with ball work yet,” said Neil. “We are just taking a bit of time with him, but he will be up and running soon.
