New Hartlepool United boss Darren Sarll has called for unity and togetherness following his appointment at the weekend.

The former Woking and Yeovil boss replaced Kevin Phillips on Saturday and has expressed his desire to close the gap between Pools and the play-off places, which stood at 11 points this term.

Sarll, who is renowned for a high intensity, high energy style of play, is hoping he can bring the feel good factor back to the Suit Direct Stadium.

"We are only ever going to be successful as one.

"This room here (the dressing room) has to grab the attention and enthusiasm of our people, our town, and we've got to try and make these moments possible.

"I've worked so, so hard in my previous jobs to connect with supporters.

"It's going to be straight and honest, no games, no fluff, and I can't wait to share some big days with you (the supporters)."
