Chelsea FC training with new boss Lampard at Carton House in Maynooth

New Chelsea FC manager Frank Lampard has put his squad through their paces for the first time as head coach at Carton House in Maynooth.

The Club chose the training facilities at the hotel resort for its pre-season build-up.

Spirits were high in the Irish capital, with Lampard working with his squad for the first time as the ‘gaffer’.

The Friday evening session at the magnificent Carton House facilities was conducted under perfect training conditions, with plenty of smiles on show.

The light session consisted of a warm-up, fitness work and small-sided drills before finishing off with a quick dip in the ice bath before heading in for dinner.

Lampard worked with his squad again on Saturday morning,  starting with a gym session before heading out onto the grass.
