How did Hartlepool United players fare throughout pre-season including Sunderland, Blackburn Rovers and Lincoln City fixtures

It's been a busy number of weeks for Paul Hartley and Hartlepool United.

Hartley officially arrived in the role just over a month ago and has since welcomed 12 new signings to the Suit Direct Stadium and, following the 1-1 draw with Sunderland, completed a rigorous pre-season programme.

Pools spent a week in Portugal as part of a warm weather training camp where they also squared off against Scottish Premiership side Hibernian in the Algarve.

Upon their return, Pools enjoyed success in a non-league double-header against Billingham Synthonia and Marske United before stepping up their preparations against league opposition.

Lincoln City were first to head to the Suit Direct Stadium where Tom Crawford earned Hartley’s side a draw before suffering a narrow defeat to Championship side Blackburn Rovers.

Pools rounded off their pre-season schedule with a creditable draw against Sunderland before they travel to Walsall to begin the new League Two season.

And here is how Pools players have fared throughout the pre-season campaign.
