Jonathan Greening is in the Pools starting eleven for tonight’s pre-season friendly against Middlesbrough at Victoria Park (7.30pm kick-off).
The former Boro midfielder has joined the Club in training this week and the Pools boss wanted to take a look at the 35-year-old in a game situation.
Luke James and Michael Duckworth – who both earlier signed new contracts with the Club – are also included in Cooper’s starting line-up for this evening’s fixture.
Dimi Konstantopoulous and Christian Burgess both start for the visitors, as does their new signing James Husband who joined from Doncaster Rovers earlier today.
