Pools Chairman Gary Coxall underlined the Club’s commitment to the Armed Forces on Saturday when he signed a special Covenant prior to the game with Newport County.
It was revealed last week that Pools had made history by becoming the first football club in the country to win the Bronze Award as part of the Armed Forces Employer Recognition Scheme.
Coxall was joined on the pitch by Col Steve Hopper who is Assistant Commander of the 4th Infantry Brigade, Lt Col Andy Black, WO2 Mark Hill MBE, Councillor Allan Barclay and Mayor Rob Cook to witness the signing of the Armed Forces Covenant.
To celebrate the partnership, half-time entertainment was also laid on in the form of a parade and marching band with various associations from around the region taking part in the spectacle.
The signing of the Covenant commits the Football Club to upholding the values of the Armed Forces, supporting and promoting their work and sharing the fact that Pools are a forces-friendly organisation.
