As Saints approach another Big FA Cup Game against a former league side, here are ten things you need to know about Hartlepool United.

  1. Brackley and Hartlepool may not have too much in common but there is one link. Midfielder Ebby Nelson-Addy who featured in 2013-14 and 2014-15 for Saints also played for Hartlepool, moving to Victoria Park from Brackley in March 2015.  Ebby made his debut for League Two United in the 3-0 defeat at Luton Town on 18 April and made three further appearances before eventually returning to non-league football with Worcester City. 
  1. Hartlepool United have played under a variety of names including Hartlepool, Hartlepools United and currently Hartlepool United. The name Hartlepools United marked the coalescence of the neighbouring communities of Hartlepool and West Hartlepool.

Stand Together:  update 1/10/19

While ground developments are there for everyone to see with the new covered area in place already and plans for the new stands and terracing well advanced, the latest news on the clubhouse remains that the insurance pay-out is still to be settled and there will be no white knight riding to our rescue.  However, the club has drawn up exciting plans for a new clubhouse which the work of the Stand Together campaign will support.

There is lots of activity underway under the auspices of the Stand Together campaign and plenty of activities coming up that we hope lots of supporters and other people in the wider community will want to support.

In this bulletin we wanted to keep everyone updated with the latest news on the campaign.
