Melbourne Heart goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne has described the side's pre-season to date as "phenomenal".

After almost a month of training the Red and White shot-stopper is genuinely excited about the Club's prospects for the upcoming season.

"I'm really like the way the boys are shaping," Redmayne said.

"The team's been focusing on longer sessions and more game related sessions; it's been phenomenal and the boys have been extremely sharp."

Redmayne, 24, recently signed a new two-year extension which will see the former Under-20 Socceroo remain at the Club until 2015-16.

With his future secured he's extremely focused on improving his game during the extended pre-season schedule.

"Personally the goalkeepers are working on a lot more power and strength and the more technical side of the game," he said.

Redmayne praised the work of Joey Didulica, who has been helping him make the correct adjustments on the pitch by analysing footage of his play last season.

"He's a lot more hands on with the video and cutting up footage of games and really finding out what I need to work on," he said.

"We look at picking up key points in my game so I can take it to the next level."

The Red and White number one highlighted an aspect of his game he's looking to develop further before the season commences.

"A lot of the goals I conceded last year were from short range," he said.

"So I need to work on getting lower, being more rigid and more aggressive to really put the onus on the striker to beat me."
