Pools sign Henrich Ravas

1 October 2020

HartlepoolUnited are delighted to announce the loan signing of Henrich Ravas

The Goalkeeper

joins us from Championship side Derby County and will stay with Pools for the

full 2020/21 season.

The 6'4 Slovakian joined Derby after

spending time with both Sky Bet League 1 side Peterborough United and National

League North outfit Boston United on non-contract terms.

Ravas gained valuable experience with

Derby's Under-23s in the EFL Trophy during the 2016/17 season, playing in the

group-stage fixtures at Port Vale and Doncaster Rovers.

The 2017/18 campaign was a positive one

for Ravas, as he spent the season on loan at National League North outfit

Gainsborough Trinity. He appeared 43 times in total and, despite several fine

performances which resulted in him being named as Gainsborough's Young Player

of the Year, he was unable to help the side avoid relegation.

He acted as Derby's third-choice goalkeeper upon his

return to Derby during the 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons and appeared as an

unused substitute on several occasions, as well developing his talent alongside

Head Goalkeeping Coach Shay Given.

Ravas spokeof his delight after signing for Pools:

“Hartlepool

is such a big club and when I heard about the interest, I was eager to get the

deal done. I am excited to work the squad and Ross Turnbull as everyone knows

about Ross' amazing career. I am just excited to get started”.

DaveChallinor also added:

“Henrich is

someone me and Ross have looked at for a while. He has done well at Derby and we

are excited to have him with the squad and working with Ross”.
