Flashback: Pools 6 Manchester United 0

24 August 2018

It’s thirty years to the day since Pools hammered Manchester United in a pre-season friendly at The Vic – and now you can watch all six goals.

On a memorable evening in Hartlepool, birthday boy John Tinkler opened the scoring early on before Andy Toman added a second goal on the half-hour mark.

Popular front man Kevin Dixon then helped himself to a hat-trick which came in a twenty-minute spell either side of half-time before Simon Grayson hit the net on 71 minutes to make it 6-0.

There’s little doubt that Sir Alex Ferguson’s hairdryer made an appearance in the changing rooms after the result on Wednesday 24th August 1988.
