Hartlepool United have confirmed they will hold an open training session allowing fans the opportunity to see Craig Hignett put his squad through their paces.

The session, which will be free to attend, will be held at Billingham Town on Thursday, August, 25 as Hartlepool prepare to face Newport County only two days later.

Pools will be training from 10am, while after the session fans will be able to meet the squad with opportunities for photos and autographs.

Donations will be welcomed on the day with all proceeds going to Billingham Town.

Hignett said: "This is a chance for the fans to come and watch us train and for the staff and the players to show their appreciation for the support we get."

"On Saturday we had over 100 fans travel all the way to Exeter to cheer us on – it’s brilliant support really and we wanted to give something back to them.

"As well as that, we have a good relationship with Billingham Town.

"It’s where we play our reserve games and train from time to time so it’s good that we can try to help them in this way."
