The club said the store at the Suit Direct Stadium was broken into on the morning of Sunday, January 2, and has caused considerable damage.

It is closed until further notice although Pools say they hope to have it open again in time for this weekend’s FA Cup home tie against Blackpool.

The club released a statement on Tuesday in which they said: “It is with great regret that we have had to close the Pools retail store until further notice following a break in on Sunday morning which has caused considerable damage.
