Career Biography

Young defender Ben Pollock signed a professional deal with Pools during the summer of 2016 after impressing on trial.

Son of former Middlesbrough and Manchester City star Jamie, Pollock had previously been on the books of both Middlesbrough and Leeds United before joining Newcastle United on a scholarship in 2014.

However, after hearing news of his impending release at the end of 2015/16, Pools made their move to bring the ball-playing centre-back to The Vic on trial and his performances earned him his first professional contract in May 2016.
