Match Preview: Harrogate Head to Hartlepool

28 July 2023

It's pre-season game four for Hartlepool United as Harrogate Town visit the Suit Direct Stadium on Friday (7.30pm KO).

The Opposition

Harrogate play in League Two and finished the last campaign in 19th on 52 points. Led by manager Simon Weaver, the Sulphurites features former Pools loanees in Matty Daly and Luke Armstrong. Armstrong was instrumental for Pools in their last National League campaign, providing vital goals in the club's promotion season.

The History

The sides have met 11 times competitively, with Pools winning four matches, Harrogate winning five matches, and two matches ending in a draw. Last season, the sides met three times - twice in the league and once in the FA Cup. Pools lost in the away league fixture, won the FA Cup clash, and drew the home league fixture.

Pete Jameson played for Harrogate in the last fixture, and he's since joined Pools on loan from the Yorkshire side for the 23/24 season.

Team News

Charlie Seaman will be available to make his first appearance in blue and white after recently joining on loan from Doncaster Rovers. Otherwise, Pools' squad will be unchanged from Tuesday when they overcame Redcar Athletic 5-1. Alex Lacey is continuing his recovery from the shoulder injury he suffered last season.
