#EDSontour: The first 24 hours

City's EDS and u18 teams have packed their bags and swapped Manchester for Murcia as pre-season training kicks up a gear.

Players and staff have arrived in Spain ahead of ten days consisting of gruelling double training sessions, as Patrick Vieira and Jason Wilcox look to prepare the squads for success at home and abroad over the coming year.
