There have been many players who have captured the hearts of Poolies during their short loan stints at Victoria Park.

We’ve asked fans for suggestions and thrown in a few of our own to look at some of Pools’ best short-term loan signings in the club’s recent history.

To be considered, the player must have only spent part of a season at the club before returning to their parent club, playing 25 games or fewer over the course of said campaign (sorry Luke Armstrong).

Players who returned to Pools on a short-term loan (eg. Gary Liddle during the 2019-20 season) will not be included given their prior affiliation to the club.

However, players who signed for Hartlepool permanently following a successful loan spell will be included. If you have any suggestions that you feel should be added to this list, email [email protected]
