Parkhouse signs for Pools on loan

10 September 2020

HartlepoolUnited are delighted to announce the loan signing of David Parkhouse.

The strikerjoins us from Sheffield United on a loan deal till January 2021.

The 20-year-old Northern Ireland youth international

striker has yet to make a first-team appearance for the Blades but has just

returned from international duty where he scored in a Euro qualifier against

Malta U21s.

Before lockdown, Parkhouse was on loan at League Two side

Stevenage but that was cut short due to COVID. During the 2018/19 season he had

a loan spell with Derry City where he scored 19 goals in 39 appearances for the

League of Ireland Premier Division side.

Manager Dave Challinor spoke about the signing ofParkhouse:

“We are delighted to get David in. It is somewhere on the

pitch we have been looking to strengthen and he provides us just that. He is a goal

scorer and a U21 international so I believe he can do very well in this league”.

David also spoke to us about his move to Pools:

“After seeing The Vic, I am even more excited than I ever was. This is a huge club and I want to come in, score goals and help the side as best I can”.

Parkhouse will go straight into training but will not be involved in tomorrow's fixture at Morpeth.
