PORT ADELAIDE'S first to fourth year players have returned to Alberton to start their pre-season campaign.

The young guns got some touch in during warm ups before the Sherrins were put away and the first running session of the 2020 season got underway.

Veteran heads Robbie Gray and Jack Watts also made an early return to the track, running laps and getting around the young players.
