Moyes' first training session: picture special

New West Ham manager David Moyes has taken his first training session with his new squad.

The club's 16th full-time manager was confirmed this morning - just a matter of hours before he put his new charges through their paces at the club's Rush Green training complex for the first time.

Perhaps keen to shake off concerns regarding the squad's perceived lack of match fitness, a regularly criticism during Slaven Bilic's tenure, Moyes put the players through an intense workout during the session that left many players "out of breath", according to a source.

The 54-year-old - who was joined during training by Academy Director Terry Westley and not Alan Irvine, as previously predicted has two weeks in order to get his squad into shape ahead of his first Premier League fixture as manager - against Watford, at Vicarage Road, 11 days from now.
