AFC Wimbledon's first-team squad are this week in South Wales for a training camp and Simon Bassey said it will be a good opportunity to integrate new signings into the group.
Terell Thomas (pictured left with Simon above) yesterday became Wimbledon's seventh summer signing during a busy spell of transfer activity ahead of the start of 2018/19.
"With such a big number of new signings, it is brilliant to get them away together, to get that bonding within the squad," said Simon. "If you spend 24 hours together you certainly find out more about each other. We have changed the room list around with a lot of the new boys sharing with those who have been here previously. We hope that it will really bring the group together."
As well as guiding the group through intensive training sessions in preparation for the new season, the management team are still focused on improving the squad.
"We're really happy with what we've done so far," added Simon. "There is probably still going to be a little bit of movement within the squad and we have a bit of business still to do."
