Swindon striker Billy Bodin says he is in great shape ahead of his first full season in professional football.
The highly-rated 19-year-old, who started the final two games of last season, has spent the past nine days in Norcia, Italy with the rest of his Robins team-mates as they step up preparations for an assault on promotion from League Two under new boss Paolo di Canio.
Bodin got on the scoresheet in last Saturday's 11-0 romp over a Norcia Select XI and will be hoping to do so again on Wednesday night against tougher opposition in the form of a Marche XI.
"The training has been really hard but I am feeling a lot stronger and fitter already," Bodin told the club's official website. "I went to Austria last year with the first team so this is my second tour. I didn't think it would be this tough out here in Italy, but it's been really beneficial.
"It's been a hard week with early mornings and late finishes on the training ground but I feel great fitness-wise."
Meanwhile, di Canio has decided not to take his interest in Estonian left-back Taijo Teniste any further after the trialist linked up with Town in Italy.
