Hartlepool United have announced their first pre-season fixture.

Pools have arranged a match with Wigan Athletic at the Northern Gas & Power Stadium on July 25.

The Tuesday fixture with the League One side will have a 7.30pm kick-off.

Josh Laurent, who joined the then Championship side on the last day of the January transfer window, will doubtless be in the Latics squad at the Vic.
