Hartlepool United’s most well-known fan – Sky Sports presenter Jeff Stelling – has congratulated Pools on their double award.

Pools striker Luke James was awarded Skybet League Two Player of the Month for October.

And Pools boss Colin Cooper won the Skybet Manager of the Month award for the month.

Jeff – who is known for his celebration whenever Pools score while presenting his Saturday afternoon football scores show on Sky Sports – said: “Congratulations to Colin and Luke on this great double for the club.

“They will rightly say it is a team effort, and so congratulations to everyone!

“Here’s to next month, and the months to come – bring on more Sky Bet Manager of the Month and Player of the Month awards.

“Hartlepool are on the march. I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with Colin and now he’s scaling another mountain!”
