Timbers players return to JELD-WEN rested and ready for 2012
Head coach John Spencer and squad excited to get to work on the new season
With a classic Portland gray January morning as the backdrop, the Portland Timbers started their 2012 campaign with preseason fitness drills and training at JELD-WEN Field today. Veterans, rookies and draft picks all took part in what is the first step of Year Two.
“It’s always good to get the guys back,” said head coach John Spencer. “They’re such a good bunch of guys to be around personally as well as professionally. There’s some new faces and I think they’re going to be good additions to the group that we already have.”
And while 2011 was a memorable season to be sure, today also was also a chance to begin looking forward.
