West Ham United U23s are midway through their hard week of pre-season work in Slovakia, as the Academy side continue their preparations ahead of the new campaign. 

The group - led by coach Steve Potts - have taken to the training pitches, put in the hard miles on the field, and continued the work off of it in a bid to be in the best shape possible for the start of the 2019/10 Premier League 2 Division 2 season. 

Check out some of the best photos from our U23s' pre-season camp so far in the gallery above!
