Jim Kellermann is feeling stronger every day

St Mirren have been out in La Manga the past week for their pre-season training camp, as they get ready for the season ahead.
We caught up with new midfielder, Jim Kellermann, after the squad reported for training in the south east of Spain with new manager, Alan Stubbs.

Kellermann said: “It’s been good. It’s been hard work obviously, but the lads have been great and training has been good.
"It’s been very hot, but it’s been very good – we needed it as a squad and we’ve really worked hard together. It’s been a positive time over here."
"It’s how you set yourself to start the year. We know it’s all going to be tough over here, but these things are hugely important going into the season, and it’s been a very, very good week.

The Englishman joined from National League side Aldershot Town in June, but the 23 year-old knows that putting in the work now will only benefit the team long term.

He continued: "We’ve been worked very hard and we needed that – we’re going into a tough division. But the training has been very good, the ball has been out plenty and you can see the way the manager wants us to play and it’s not too different from previously, from what I’ve heard from the other lads. So it’s all been good.
"At the end of the week I was knackered, but I’m feeling stronger every day, as is everyone else."

This was also a chance for Kellermann and fellow new signings McGinn, Heaton, Cooke and King to bond and gel with their new team mates as The Buddies take the step up from Championship to Premiership football this season. 

He added: "Obviously the room situations that we’re in allows you to talk to players you wouldn’t usually. All the lads have been great though and have made me feel very welcome, as they have with the other new boys.
"You can see why they did so well last year, because they’re a tight knit group."
