HARTLEPOOL United wore a one-off kit for Saturday’s FA Cup win over Notts County as the club once again did their bit to raise funds for the British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.

For the last seven seasons Pools have supported the annual charity appeal, wearing a poppy emblem on their shirts and then auctioning them off after the game.

Chief executive Russ Green said: “We’ve always tried to support the British Legion’s Poppy Appeal and we’re delighted to be able to

do so again.

“We were among the first clubs to incorporate a poppy logo on to match shirts and we’re proud of the amount of money our supporters have helped us raise over the last seven years.

“Hopefully these shirts will go down well once again so we can come close to beating the magnificent totals we’ve raised in the past.”

Details will be released next week about how people can get their hands on one of the unique match-worn shirts.
