The local press gathered at Victoria Park this afternoon to carry out their first interviews with Matthew Bates since his appointment as permanent Manager.
As well as speaking to Bates about his plans for the new season, the media were also given the opportunity to chat to Director of Football Craig Hignett.
After going in front of the cameras for both BBC and Tyne Tees, the pair spoke with BBC Tees and reporters from all three local newspapers.
And we had our photographer Mark Fletcher (Shutter Press) on hand to capture the afternoon's interviews on camera.
Take a look through our gallery of photos of Bates and Hignett being put under the spotlight.
