New coach Graham Arnold was joined by recently appointed strength and conditioning guru Andrew Clark as they put the Sky Blues through their paces.

Linking up with the harboursiders for the first time was double Golden Boot winner and Kiwi international, Shane Smeltz, who joined Sydney from Perth Glory on a one-year-deal.

Former Central Coast Mariners young gun Bernie Ibini was also reunited with Arnold and Clark.

Meanwhile it was a much more relaxed looking Nick Carle who joined his teammates, hoping for a big year after being frozen out of the side at the back end of last season by ex-coach Frank Farina.
