Jack Hunter signs for Pools

Experienced midfielder Jack Hunter has arrived at the Suit Direct Stadium as Darren Sarll’s second signing of the 2024/25 campaign.

The 26-year-old has agreed to join Pools upon the expiration of his contract at Halifax at the end of this month, subject to National League and FA approval.

Hailing from the North East, Hunter has played over 100 games in the National League, successfully registering a play-off finish with Halifax last campaign.

The midfielder, who is also adept at centre-back, won the FA Trophy during his two-year stay with the Shaymen, where he played with current Pools frontman Mani Dieseruvwe.

Hunter also enjoyed spells with Newcastle United and Gateshead earlier in his career, playing an important role as the Heed lifted the National League North title in 2022.

He joins Luke Charman, a former Newcastle teammate, in signing up to Sarll’s squad for the upcoming season.

Upon joining Pools, Hunter stated:

“I’m thrilled to be here at the Club, it’s been in the works for quite a while. From my first conversation with the gaffer, his ambition of where he wants to take the Club and how he wants to use me was a massive factor in coming here. I’ve matured a lot over the last few years and I’m excited to contribute with that experience from my time at Gateshead and Halifax. I’ve played at the Suit Direct Stadium twice before and it’s a fantastic place to play football, the atmosphere can make a huge difference. I’m really looking forward to being back in the North East and getting started here.”

Pools manager Darren Sarll added:

“We met Jack sometime ago – right way you could feel his humility and the real energy to want to play for Hartlepool United. His profile fitted into how I want this new midfield to look and during the research phase for Jack, I couldn’t help but be impressed by his recent seasons at Halifax, in particular last year where they finished above us and in the play-offs.

“His unassuming performances are key to creating winning environments, and it reflects his personality in the sacrificial way he plays for his teams. And Jack is another player from the North East, and his desire to be back in the region was key to his decision of selecting us over other competitors. Going back to the time we met him, those values stood out right away that this was a player that not only wanted to win, but also wanted to improve and become better. I’m excited to work with Jack this season and hopefully he can help the Club win some valuable points.”
