Pools won 4-0 at the Brewery Field 12 months ago and loaned Lewis Hawkins to Moors last season, the midfielder performing well ahead of a return to Victoria Park in January.

Craig Hignett’s side will face a confident Moors side after former Pools midfielder Jason Ainsley led them to the EvoStik Premier League.

Spennymoor won promotion back in April when they beat Northwich Victoria 2-0 in the Evo-Stik Division One North play-off final.

It’s the sixth pre-season fixture for Pools after games against Billingham Town (Saturday), Sunderland (h, July 20), Livingston (a, July 23), Salford City (a, July 26) and Scunthorpe (h, July 30).
