Bristol Rovers are targeting another promotion push when the season gets underway on Saturday.
Rovers narrowly missed out on the League One playoffs last year.
The club has brought in several new players during the transfer window including striker Tom Nichols and defender Tom Broadbent.
Nichols has settled well at the club and scored in a 2-1 victory over Premier League side West Brom.
He has played previously for Exeter and had a brief spell on loan at Bath City.
The 23 year-old says the team spirit at the club is a big strength on the pitch.
25 year-old Tom Broadbent is a former soldier with the Royal Artillery.
Broadbent completed a tour of Afghanistan and played football for the Army team before deciding to try and become a professional player.
Broadbent compiled a personal highlight reel which impressed the club enough to sign him.
He is already in peak physical shape and ready for the new season.
Broadbent also says now he can train consistently which is helpful for his game.
Broadbent was given a surprise welcome to the club when he had water emptied over his head by teammates.
Rovers spent a week training in Portugal to prepare for the new season and with several other signings the squad will have to gel quickly.
Broadbent once scored a free kick in an Army-Navy match at Yeovil.
Rovers will be hoping he and Nichols can provide the firepower to lead Rovers's promotion push.
