Chance for young Pools fans to watch Hartlepool for free

Young Hartlepool United fans have another chance to watch games at Victoria Park for free.

The opportunity comes thanks to a joint venture between Hartlepool Borough Council and the football club.

The School and Football Enterprise Scheme (SAFE) offers groups of youngsters the chance to watch Hartlepool’s home league games from the family enclosure.

Groups of up to 18 children can take part.

The only requirement is they must arrange their own transport and be adequately supervised by two adults.

Any community group is welcome to apply, including schools, scouts, guides and church organisations. Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Dates are available from Saturday, November 28 when Hartlepool welcome Oxford United to Victoria Park.

Anyone wanting more information should contact Pat Wormald at Hartlepool Borough Council on (01429) 523404.
