Groves will take a 22 man squad over to San Roque in southern Spain on Wednesday 18th July and return two days before the Cherries second pre-season friendly against Poole Town.
The squad will spend five days training while in Spain and Groves believes it will give the new members of the squad the ideal opportunity to integrate into the team.

Satá21st July, 3pm - New Milton
Fri 27th July, 7.45pm - Poole Town
Sat 28th July, 3pm - Winchester City

Groves told afcb.co.uk...
'We have the opportunity to have five days away, and it will help integrate the new players and bring the group together, which I think is essential,'
'But most importantly, it gives us the opportunity to do the work that needs to be done without any distractions...'
'...Pre-season is going to be a big period for us. When it comes to the results, they're immaterial. What is important is that the preparations is correct and the players' fitness is built up over a period time and we start the season in a good condition.'
