Dundee United beat Cove Rangers 3-0 in a closed-doors game at St Andrews on Saturday.
Two first-half goals by a trialist striker were added to in the second half by a Henri Anier strike as Ray McKinnon used the opportunity to give all 17 outfield players a run-out.
The United boss told the club’s official website: “It was a good run out and the lads were superb.
“It is about getting the fitness up and if you pushed me for a criticism it’s that we could have scored more.
“For the first game in pre-season, I am delighted by the fitness levels and performance levels.”
Meanwhile, a young United squad took part in the annual D & K Laferty Cup in Oban on Saturday.
After losing to Hamilton Accies, United beat Alloa Athletic 2-0 thanks to goals from Graham Taylor and Harry Souttar.
Matty Smith, Logan Chalmers and Graham Taylor grabbed the goals in a 3-0 victory over Hearts before the final game saw the host Oban Saints hold United to a 0-0 draw.
Hamilton Accies were the winners of the round-robin tournament.
Freed United keeper Michal Szromnik is at the centre of a tug-of-war between Polish rivals Lechia Gdansk and Arka Gdynia.
The 23-year-old is a free agent and his availability has alerted Gdansk and former club Gdynia, whom he joined United from in 2014.
Szromnik is currently back in his native Gdansk as he seeks to get his career back on track before the start of the Polish Ekstraklasa later this month.
