New signing Aidan Keena is hoping to get on the goal trail for Pools after clinching a move to Victoria Park from Scottish Premiership side Hearts.
The confident 20-year-old checked-in at The Vic on Friday morning
and must now wait for international clearance coming through before he is freeto make his Pools debut.
However, the Republic of Ireland Under-21 international is
excited by the chance to move south of the border and showcase his ability inthe National League after two years in Scotland.
“I was told by Hearts that I was free to find another club,”Keena told Pools TV.
“That was a bit gutting to hear but I had a few offers and
then this came along so I am delighted to sign and get it done quickly andhopefully I can hit the ground running.
“I have heard about Hartlepool before because one of my oldcoaches, Jon Daly, was here and I am pretty sure he put a good word in for me!
“I have had a few trials at clubs in England in the past butnow I can't wait to come down here and really try my hand at it.
“Everywhere I have gone before I have scored goals and that'swhat I want do now I am here at this Club.
You don't sign a striker just to play – you want him to score goals so hopefully that is what I am going to do.”
