RONNIE Moore is looking forward to new signing Rakish Bingham hitting the goal trail for Hartlepool United.

The 21-year-old striker has re-joined Pools, where he enjoyed a loan spell last season, after being released by Mansfield Town.

Bingham is Moore’s first signing as he looks to re-build a Pools squad looking to improve on a third-bottom finish last season.

A delighted Moore said: “When he was here during last season he did really well and we missed his pace when he went back.

“He gives us an out, he is always a threat and hopefully there will be plenty more goals to come from him as well.

“He just needs an arm around him. He has spent too much time on the bench at Mansfield and now it is up to myself and Sam to get out of him what we think he’s got in there.

“We know he can become a really competitive player and we’re looking forward to working with him,” added Moore, who was talking to the club’s website.

Bingham, who played five games for Pools during his month-long loan, was released by Mansfield Town at the end of the season.
