Hartlepool United’s pre-season training camp in Portugal is already well under way as new manager Paul Hartley gets to grips with his squad of players.

Pools arrived at their Moncarapacho training base on Monday and were immediately put through their paces ahead of their pre-season fixture with Scottish Premiership side Hibernian.

Hartley has suggested Pools will undergo triple sessions while out in the Algarve during their warm weather camp as the new signings continue to integrate themselves within the squad.
