Fans React To Busy Day At The Vic

11 February 2016

We round-up the best of the social media responses following Wednesday's dramatic day of news at Victoria Park.

It was a busy day at Victoria Park on Wednesday as we announced news of Ronnie Moore’s departure following by the story that Craig Hignett was the new man in charge at The Vic.

During the day, both ‘Ronnie Moore’ and ‘Craig Hignett’ were trending on Twitter as social media lit up with talk of Hartlepool United.

We’ve taken a look through some of that activity to bring you a flavour of what was being said as the news developed at The Vic.
