We review this afternoon's Christmas issue of The Blue Print.
There’s a special festive edition of Matchday Programme The Blue Print today and we’d love as many of possible of you to pick up a copy on your way in to Victoria Park today.
We’ve packed in plenty of brilliant content this afternoon, including an exclusive interview with Michael Duckworth who tells us why he had no option but to make it in professional football.
We find out what the players are crossing their fingers for this Christmas in our Dear Santa feature, while we also have enough to keep young fans busy in our H’Angus Hangout column.
Andy Monkhouse is the latest to take on Higgy’s Hundred as he reveals what he would change about himself, what his worst haircut has been and why he was the teacher’s pet in Design and Technology lessons at school!
Meanwhile, it’s Neil Austin’s turn to fall under the Firsts and Lasts spotlight – find out why he called his first car Eleanor, what random football shirt he owned when he was younger and why he once touched Justin Timberlake’s foot!
Phil Dunn chats with former Pools star Paul Bielby to share his memories of playing for the Club in his Magic Number feature, while Colin Foster bemoans the impact of Movember on men’s faces and remembers some of Pools’ most famous moustaches!
We’ve got the lowdown on visitors Burton Albion, as well as photos from our game at Cheltenham Town and columns from Chairman Ken Hodcroft, boss Colin Cooper, Chief Executive Russ Green and skipper Antony Sweeney.
All in all, we reckon you’ll love today’s issue of The Blue Print – it may even work as a small Christmas gift if you’ve still got things to buy!
So look out for sellers today around the ground because every copy we sell directly helps Pools.
