Profile

Hartlepool United named Craig Hignett as their new manager in February 2016, just hours after parting ways with Ronnie Moore. Hignett ventured into the managerial arena for the first time and managed to save the club from relegation out of the Football League, finishing the season in 16th.

Hartlepool count Jeff Stelling among their supporters. The Gillete Soccer Saturday host is a passionate fan of the North East club and regularly bemoans his side's lack of luck. Hartlepool have never played in the top two-tiers of English football, which is surprising considering that they have spent over 80 seasons in the Football League.

A losing record in a binary last 10 games has seen Hartlepool United endure a period of poorer form. Invaluable wins against Accrington Stanley, Cheltenham Town and Stamford has seen them keep their heads above water, but reversals against Port Vale, Wycombe Wanderers, Doncaster Rovers, Rochdale, Barnet, Leyton Orient and Carlisle United has put them on the slide.
