For weeks Hartlepool United have been been bombarded with tweets which have said one thing, ‘announce Molyneux’ – even pop sensation Lewis Capaldi was getting in on the act.

And this week the club did to send Poolies into a social media frenzy. 

Luke Molyneux completed a full-time move to Pools following a successful loan spell from north east neighbours Sunderland on Wednesday.
