THE first milestone has been reached in this summer’s season ticket offer at Hartlepool United.

Fred Roberts helped the club break the 1,000 mark when he called into Victoria Park to buy tickets for himself, his wife Elaine and his son Scott, yesterday lunchtime.

Pools fan Fred said: “I’ve had a season ticket for the past couple of years and before that I had a table in the CK Carvery for every game.

“I didn’t know that we were closing in on 1,000 but I think that’s a really good start to the sales so early on in the summer so hopefully it can continue.

“The deal is another fantastic one so I knew I would renew mine as soon as I saw the details.

“Now we’re all hoping for two or three exciting signings and hopefully a packed Victoria Park again because the atmosphere was great last season with more people in the ground.”

If sales go well fans could see their names entered into a draw to win £15,000.
