The attacking midfielder was drafted in to the First Team picture in February 2017 after impressing then-boss Dave Jones whilst still a scholar.

Hawkes had been on the books at Pools for three years and made excellent progress playing for the Youth Team and Reserves before earning a senior debut against Crewe Alexandra and then a pro contract soon afterwards.

The highly-rated youngster has gone on to become a more regular in the side, making 32 appearances and scoring 9 goals during 2019/20.

Blessed with a knack of arriving late in to the penalty area to score goals, he also has superb delivery from set-pieces and free kicks – and last year he took over penalty taking duties despite his tender years.
