Love Pools, Hate Racism

Hartlepool United, Kick It Out

Following events at the weekend, the Club will continue to focus on action rather than words and will make substantive statements once we have completed discussions with the police and handed over all appropriate evidence.

We have spoken with the squad and liaised with anti-racism charities to assist us in taking the appropriate action to support the players and raise awareness.

For Tuesday night’s game we are asking all Poolies to get behind us in taking a stand against racism and will be issuing special cards to be held up declaring “Love Pools, Hate Racism”.

We are grateful that various supporters groups have offered to contribute towards the production and distribution of these, and hope that as many Pools fans as possible will get behind a simple demonstration to show the players and the public what we are really about.

We will make communicate more once further action has been taken.

As Craig Hignett declared on Saturday – if you attack one person, you attack us all.
