Jamie Sterry signs new deal

12 July 2021

We are delighted to announce Jamie Sterry has signed a new two-yearcontract at Hartlepool United.

The defender commits his future with Pools ahead of our 2021/22 Football League campaign.

Sterry, joined Pools in December 2020 and quickly became a fan

favourite in the right-wing back role making 30 appearances for Dave Challinor's

side last season. The defender made his debut at home to Stockport County in a

4-0 victory.

Playing the full 120 minutes at the Promotion Final in Bristol and scoring a penalty in the shootout, the defender explained “the whole day was a surreal moment that will never be forgotten”.

The defender started his career at his boyhood club Newcastle United going on to make eight first-team appearances.

He was handed a Premier League bow by Rafa Benítez in May 2016, Sterry had loan spells with Coventry City and Crewe Alexandra either side of being part of Newcastle's Championship side in 2016/17.

After leaving

Newcastle, Sterry signed for Northern Premier League side South Shields in

October playing a big part in their FA Cup success with a victory over Halifax


We spoke to Dave Challinor regarding Sterry's newcontract: 

Delighted that Jamie has chosen to

stay with us as we embark on a new challenge of the football league. He was

undoubtedly key for us in our success last season and has openly said how much

he's enjoyed his football. Logistically it will allow him to be at home with

his family and new-born and hopefully Hartlepool United can be his football

home for a long time to come.

Jamie Sterry gives his thoughts:

I am over the moon to re-sign for the next two seasons. I

have loved every minute at the club and we are all looking to push on next


Ever since I joined Hartlepool, the staff and the ladshave been fantastic, and I am now just enjoying playing football.

We have a big season ahead back in the Football League and I can't wait to get going. The biggest factor for me was the fans. The support we had inside The Vic at the end of the season and the Promotion Final was surreal. The passion they have for the club is unbelievable and I can't wait to play in-front of a packed-out Victoria Park next season.
