Pools stars Rhys Oates and Devante Rodney helped guests at HUDSA’s Season Launch party get right in the mood for the big kick-off by calling in to surprise them on Wednesday night.
The Pools duo turned up to meet fans at the Disabled Supporters’ Association event, where they spent an hour signing autographs and posing for pictures before also drawing the evening’s raffle.
HUDSA hold a party for fans every Wednesday at Hartlepool Catholic Club but their Season Launch night is always hotly-anticipated so the players were pleased to be invited.
“It was great to see so many supporters enjoying themselves,” said Rodney afterwards.
“There were so many wanting us wish us good luck for the season and say how excited they were so hopefully we can do them justice when things get started on Saturday.”
