Pools will pay tribute to former boss Neale Cooper this weekend when a stand at Victoria Park renamed in his honour is officially opened prior to the game with Sunderland.
The Club recently announced plans to rename the Mill House Stand as the Neale Cooper Stand sponsored by East Durham College and an unveiling ceremony will take place before kick-off this weekend.
Tributes will be read out, flowers will be laid in front of the stand by representatives from the Club and there will then be a minute’s applause in honour of Neale, who passed away at the end of May.
We’re delighted that Neale’s daughters, Amy and Ellie, will both join us at Victoria Park as our guests for the game on Saturday.
We would ask all supporters to take their places in the ground in good time ahead of the ceremony, which is expected to start at around 2.45pm.
