Pools fans enjoy a surprise at Annual Awards Night

Hartlepool United held an their annual end of the season awards event on Tuesday night, with a number of players given awards for their efforts over the season.

The night proved to be very popular with supporters who had the opportunity to meet the players as well as thanking them for their efforts over the season.

The full team were in attendance for the event at the Staincliffe Hotel, as fans piled in to congratulate the team for securing League 2 football for another season.

The night saw awards go to Luke James, Bradley Walker, Michael Duckworth and James Poole for their own individual achievements.

Top scorer, Luke James, claimed both the Supporters’ and the Player’s Player of the Year honours.

Central midfielder, Bradley Walker, also bagged himself two awards after he was given Young Player of the Year and Goal of the Season for his superb strike against Southend away.

Full back, Michael Duckworth, was voted as the Away Player of the Year and James Poole was given the Community Player of the Year prize.

But the awards were not the only thing that were set to be revealed on the night.

There was a surprise for guests at the Awards Event as Pools unveiled their new home and away kits for the 2014/2015 campaign.


The home kit, worn by Luke James,  keeps United’s traditional blue and white stripes but goes without the collar from this season.

The away kit was one which caused a lot more surprise.

Young Player of the Year, Bradley Walker modelled the away shirt, a pink bodied shirt with black side panels.

Both kits will be available for purchase during July.
