Pre-Season: Hibs 2-0 Hartlepool

Last updated : 29 June 2022 By Steve Forbes

Hibs played their first pre-season game this afternoon, an strolled to victory over Hartlepool in the blazing heat of Portugal.

The Hibees were never in trouble against Paul Hartley's side and managed to field 8 of the 9 new summer signings at some point during the game.

Hibs first goal came after the ball broke to Ewan Henderson, who fired past the keeper from range, following a solid challenge from Jake Doyle-Hayes in the middle of the Park.

Ryan Porteous headed in the second shortly after the half-time break.

Norwegian striker Elias Melkersen also had the ball in the net, but it was chopped off for offside.

Hibs played a 4-3-2-1 formation.

Hibs first-half XI: Marshall, Miller, Bushiri, McClelland, Stevenson, Kenneh, Doyle-Hayes, Hauge, Henderson, Tavares, Youan.

Second-half XI: Dabrowski, Cadden, Porteous, Brydon, Doig, Newell, Delferriere, Melkersen, Campbell, McGeady, Doidge. 

Sub not used: Johnson

Next up, the Hibees play Burton Albion at the same venue on Friday.


A good work out for the team.

Some of the new signings showed glimpses of promise, but it was a game more for fitness than performance.

Hibs never looked in trouble and knocked the ball about well.
