Pools duo Josh Hawkes and Lewis Hawkins called in to see guests at the Disabled Supporters’ Association Season Launch Party on Wednesday night.
The midfield stars joined the fun at Hartlepool Catholic Club where HUDSA were holding their regular bash in anticipation of the new campaign getting underway this weekend.
Hawkes and Hawkins spent an hour chatting to fans, signing autographs and posing for pictures before helping organiser Neil Appleyard to draw the raffle.
“It’s always nice to get out and meet supporters, particularly at this stage of the year when we’re all so excited about the new season,” explained Hawkins.
“They were all having plenty of fun at the disco but they seemed pleased to see us when we arrived and there were plenty of words of encouragement ahead of Saturday’s game.
“Lots of the people there are regulars at The Vic so hopefully we can do them all proud during 2018/19.”
