Photo Of The Week: Your Views

1 February 2013

We look at some emails from supporters and name the players in the photograph.

Our first Photo of the Week published on the Official Website on Tuesday certainly got you talking and we had several emails from supporters who remembered the release of Never Say Die. 

Recorded in 1972, it was the Christmas present of choice in Hartlepool and received a lot of publicity locally and even reached a national audience on occasion. 

"I had a letter published in The Guardian after they'd mentioned something about Who Put Sugar in My Tea, which was actually the A-Side," Pools fan Mike Bell told us. 

"I pointed out the fact that the lads had to run on the pitch while listening to "we go on the park and we're full of hope; But some days it seems that we just can't cope" blasting out of the speakers. 

"Well, it wasn't exactly blasting in those days, but it was loud enough to make want to turn round and run right back in again!" 

Stephen Wiles added: "I remember buying the record and I think it got in to the Northern Daily Mail's top ten! 

"I also remember it being played on national radio (Light Programme or Radio 2) one Saturday morning as a requires for me from two of my nieces." 

A few of you had a go at naming the players pictured above so here's the full line-up - how many did you get? 

Back Row: Bobby Veart, George Potter, Alan Goad, Ken Ellis, Malcolm Dawes, Neil Warnock, Mick Gadsby, Bill Green. 
Front Row: Mick Spelman, Nick Sharkey, Ron Young, Jimmy Kelly, Billy Ward. 

Look out for another Photo of the Week on Tuesday.
