HARTLEPOOL United will entertain Sunderland in a pre-season friendly on Friday, July 27 (7.30pm kick-off).

The visit of Martin O’Neill’s Black Cats will be the first friendly of the summer at Victoria Park.

The Black Cats formed the opposition at the Vic last year for Ritchie Humphreys Testimonial game, which attracted a crowd of nearly 6,000.

Ticket prices are confirmed at £10 for adults and £5 for concessions.
