Pools have clinched their 500th sale thanks to one of their longest-serving supporters.

Eric Robinson, 81-years-young has renewed his ticket in the Niramax Stand, or the Mill House in ‘old money’.

His purchase follows on from a more dramatic purchase – the arrival of the ‘fab four’ after new boss, Craig Harrison, signed keeper Scott Loach, midfielder Luke George, attacker Jack Munns and centre-forward Jake Cassidy.

“The new signings look good,” said Eric, who told the club website that he has been a fan for 70 years.

“It looks like a step in the right direction and although I don’t know too much about the new manager, I like what I have heard so far.

“We’ve just got to go out next season and try to win it, onwards and upwards and hopefully it’ll be a good season.”
