LEETON United will get some run into their legs when they take on Hanwood in a trial match on Sunday.
To be played in Leeton, it will be United's first match of any sort as part of their pre-season training, which officially got underway about a month ago.
Coach Frank Alampi was a little concerned his side wasn't fully prepared and said while there were goals for the game, the team wouldn't be taking the match "too seriously".
"We're still trying to get everyone to training at the moment," he said.
"This is just a trial game, so we'll be treating it like that.
"I think we will still go alright and it will be good to start getting a bit of match fitness."
The game will also be good preparation for United as they look to take on the University of Wollongong in their opening FFA Cup match at Wollongong on March 17.
Numbers at pre-season training have so far been up and down, but Alampi is hopeful more players soon start turning out on a regular basis as the season proper approaches.
"We've picked up a few new guys as well, which is good," he said.
"At the moment we're just working on our fitness and preparing in that sense."
Sunday's trial against Hanwood was also originally going to include Henwood Park in a round robin format, but the latter had to pull out.
Alampi said the club was trying to track down another team for the day, but was unsure whether it would come to fruition.
Meanwhile, the draw for the Football Wagga competition is yet to be completed.
