HARTLEPOOL United look set to experiment with Friday night fixtures from next season.

The club recently asked supporters for their say on the suggestion and 70% of those who responded were in favour.

Pools chief executive Russ Green explained: “The results were really interesting and we’re glad we took the time to ask our supporters.

“Obviously we’re not talking about moving all of our fixtures to a Friday or anything radical like that - but we could now look to trial a maximum of two games next season and see how popular they prove.

“During my time at the vlub we’ve had some excellent results and atmospheres at Friday night games so I can see the reasoning on giving it a go again.”
