Brandon Matera in action in his first training session for Freo.

Brandon Matera was one of eight Freo players to commence their pre-season on Monday morning at Victor George Kailis Oval.

While all first to four-year players are now back on deck, Matera’s appearance at training was voluntary with his official return date at the club set for 20 November.

Alongside Matera, Brennan Cox, Sean Darcy, Taylin Duman, Griffin Logue, Ryan Nyhuis, Luke Ryan and Luke Strnadica all started their first session on light running duties, with the group given an extra week due to their commitments with Peel in the 2017 WAFL finals series.

Starting their second week or training, Connor Blakely, Brady Grey, Ethan Hughes, Cam McCarthy and Darcy Tucker completed sprints as a part of their warm-up before both groups combined for a number of football drills.

As part of their recovery from long-term injuries, Alex Pearce and Michael Apeness were on separate running programs to start their second week of pre-season.

Joel Hamling and Shane Kersten were also present, building up their fitness ahead of their official return on 20 November.

Michael Walters was also on a separate program, as the 26-year-old continues his recovery from a knee injury sustained in round 18 of the 2017 season against Hawthorn.
