Pre-season 21/22 | Hartlepool United friendly

Blyth Spartans will welcome League Two side Hartlepool United to Croft Park on Tuesday, July 27th, with kick-off taking place at 7:30pm. 

Dave Challinor’s side rightfully returned to the Football League last month after their dramatic penalty shootout win over Torquay United in the National League promotion final. 

Blyth boss Michael Nelson and assistant manager Michael Barron featured 680 times for Hartlepool between them.

Ticketing details will be released closer to the time as we await updates from Boris Johnson regarding Covid-19 restrictions.

As a result of Pools’ visit to South East Northumberland, our friendly with Morpeth Town has been cancelled. 

Blyth were due to face the Highwaymen on that day after the fixture was moved from the original date of August 3rd to make way for another opponent. 

We will announce the new opponent in due course, which will complete Michael Nelson’s side’s pre-season programme. 

Pre-season training is already underway ahead of our opener away at Marske United this Saturday.

Fixtures for the 2021/22 National League North season will be released at 11am on Wednesday, July 7. 


Saturday, July 10th: Marske United (A). 12pm kick-off.
