Hartlepool will play Dutch second-tier sides Almere City and Telstar during a mini-tour of Holland in July.

Pools, currently managerless following the sacking last week of John Hughes, will play Almere on the artificial pitch at the Stadium "de Basis" on Thursday July 4.

The north-east club, relegated to npower League Two, will then take on Telstar at the TATA Steel Stadium the following Saturday (July 6).

Pools spent a week-long trip in the same region of Holland during pre-season last summer and lost both respective fixtures 3-0 and 2-0.
