How can I manage social dynamics at training?

The question this week comes from Justin:

“We are an U13 boys team, with half the team from last season, and half the team is new this season. How do I create an environment to continue the friendships from last season whilst integrating the newer players who may feel left behind socially, which could in turn, inhibit their development as a player?”
