NEW boy Colin Nish “can’t wait” to get to work at Hartlepool United.

The powerful striker will report to Maiden Castle in Durham on Friday with his new team-mates for the start of pre-season training.

Nish admits there is work to be done, having hardly featured in the Hibernian team in the latter days of the Scottish Premier League programme.

The 30-year-old last made it out onto the field on April 9 when he came off the bench and played the final 33 minutes of a 1-0 win at Aberdeen.

His final involvement was the following weekend when he was an unused sub in the 2-1 home defeat by Hamilton.

Nish explained that, as a result, he is not in peak shape although he still cut an athletic figure when he arrived at Pools on Monday for his unveiling alongside the man who signed him, Mick Wadsworth.
