Sean J. Cosgrove Hartlepool United can today confirm that Tuesday evening's pre-season friendly with St Mirren has been called off.
This fixture was a last-minute addition to our confirmed pre-season schedule and following a reassessment, we felt that it was more beneficial to spend an uninterrupted week of training at Maiden Castle focusing on building the squad and integrating new players into the pre-season camp without the added fixture in Scotland.
We would like to apologise to supporters of both teams for this decision, however, we believe this is the best decision for our football club as we continue our preparations for the new season. We look forward to our next fixture against Billingham Synthonia on Saturday 9th July.
St.Mirren will process refunds to any fans who purchased tickets over the next few days.
