Matthew Bates and Craig Hignett with Aaron Sings, Oliver Hoey and Alfie Swift

Pools have moved to complete their first three signings of the summer with young players Oliver Hoey, Aaron Sings and Alfie Swift all joining the Club’s Academy.

Director of Football Craig Hignett and First Team Manager Matthew Bates joined Academy Manager John Hewitson in welcoming the trio to youngsters to Victoria Park last week.

Oliver is a striker who has joined the Club’s Under 9s for next term; he starred for St Teresa’s in their cup final last season and when he’s not playing football he also enjoys golf.

Fellow St Teresa’s pupil Alfie is comfortable playing in central midfield or on the right wing and was top scorer for his school team last season.

And finally Aaron is an Under 11 player from Shotley Bridge Primary who is a very talented young goalkeeper; as well as football he also enjoys swimming, rounders and futsal.

We’d like to welcome them all to the Club and wish them the best of luck for next season.
