Team News: Hibs vs Hartlepool United

Lee Johnson has named his side that’ll face Hartlepool United in our first pre-season friendly ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

The game will kick-off at 11am BST at the Amendoeira Golf Resort – our base for the week-long training camp in the Algarve – and you can watch it live on YouTube!

Like normal pre-season games, our Manager has selected two starting XIs with the players each getting 45 minutes under their belts.

That means Hibees will be able to see David Marshall, Lewis Miller, Kyle McClelland, Nohan Kenneh, Aiden McGeady, Jair Tavares and Élie Youan for the first time.

Four players have travelled to the Algarve that won’t be involved today as they continue their injury rehab, they are Paul Hanlon, Kyle Magennis, Demetri Mitchell and Kevin Nisbet.
