Pools have confirmed the first of their pre-season friendly fixtures with the news that Chesterfield are due to visit Victoria Park in early August.
The League One outfit will be our visitors to The Vic on Saturday 1st August (3pm kick-off) as part of both clubs’ final preparations for the new campaign which begins a week later.
Dean Saunders is the man in charge at Chesterfield following the departure of Paul Cook and he will be looking to continue their progress after they were defeated in the play-off semi-finals last term.
The Spireites have former Pools star Ritchie Humphreys on their books and our former boss Chris Turner is Chief Executive at The Proact Stadium.
Pools will be releasing information on further pre-season fixtures in due course.
