Hartlepool United have confirmed five pre-season friendlies, with a further warm-up game to be announced.

Darren Sarll's side will kick-off their pre-season by sending a Pools XI to take on near neighbours FC Hartlepool on July 6th.

Pools will then travel to National League North sides Scarborough Athletic and South Shields before hosting Sunderland under-21s and Scunthorpe, who just missed out on promotion to the National League after losing the play-off final on penalties last season, at the Suit Direct Stadium.
