Women's Team Waiting For Answers

19 March 2020

We get an update from Women's Team boss, Jonathan Gibbon-Hayes...

Well what a few weeks for the Women's Team. Two weeks ago we were on the biggest of highs after our win over unbeaten Farsley Celtic to now being unable to train.

The coronavirus

is taking full effect and, like everyone else, we are now in total limbo. We

are seven games from a potential promotion to the National League which is the

equivalent of the First Team getting back in to the Football League to us.

As you can

imagine, it's a stressful time for staff and players who have worked so hard to

get us in the current position and we are hoping the NERWFL will allow us to

finish the job at some point when it is safe to do so.

We are all

incredibly proud to represent Hartlepool United and, as staff, we are extremely

ambitious and want to take this club as high as we possibly can.


players are wanting to be role models for the young girls in the town and we

want the next generation dreaming of playing for this club.

So now we

are looking at putting some plans into place so the girls can maintain fitness

in a safe environment that meets the FA's guidelines.

It is

incredibly tough to keep them all motivated but luckily, we all have the same

end goal and we will stick together and hope we get to finish the job and make

the club and the whole town proud.

Look after

yourself and each other during this extraordinary time and hopefully the

football can return soon.
