The attacking midfielder was drafted in to the First Team picture in February 2017 after impressing new boss Dave Jones when playing for the Reserves.
Still a scholar, Hawkes has been on the books at Pools for three years and has made excellent progress playing for the Youth Team and Reserves since then.
Blessed with a knack of arriving late in to the penalty area to score goals, he also has superb delivery from set-pieces and is dangerous with direct free-kicks.
He made his senior debut as a substitute against Crewe Alexandra in February 2017 and went on to sign his first professional contract at the Club.
After going out on loan on several occasions in the early part of last term, Hawkes returned to make a big impact at The Vic scoring on his full debut against Bromley in March 2018 and finding the net again at Sutton United the following month.
