A Blackpool side made up mostly of trial players lost 3-1 against non-league side Kendal Town.
Watching Pool boss Paul Ince used the game as a chance to see a number of out of contract players in action before making a decision on them this week.
They included former Juventus, Wigan and Birmingham striker Olivier Kapo, Isaac Osbourne and the impressive Tope Obadeyi.
It didn’t all go to plan for the Seasiders who found themselves 2-0 down on the half-hour mark.
Former Pool youth star Danny Mitchley and Jordan Connerton with the goals.
Caleb Folan was fouled soon after and dusted himself down to score from the spot for the Pool, before Michley sealed the scoring for the home side on 58 minutes.
Pool: Halstead (Hunt 75), Hateley (Caprice 70), Osbourne, Obadeyi (Barkhuizen 70), Dodd, Triallist, Woods, Tomsett, Harris (McGahey 60), Folan (Almond 70), Kapo (Banvo 70)
