Pools sign Fletcher

26 January 2022

Hartlepool United are delighted to announce the arrival of highly regarded attacker Isaac Fletcher on loan for the remainder of the season. Joining from our neighbours at Middlesbrough FC, Fletcher will join Graeme Lee's side and provide another option going forward.

Part of Middlesbrough's academy and development squad for more than a decade, the 19-year-old has occasionally featured in Boro's senior squad since early 2021. The tall, athletic midfielder made several appearances at U18 and U23 level for Boro, netting goals against Blackburn Rovers and Burnley, as well as a hat-trick against Sunderland in 2020. Fletcher was also part of the Boro first-team squad during last season's FA Cup fixture against Brentford.

Standing at 6'4", the attacker offers a good threat aerially as well as being well known for his technical ability. Isaac has already got family connections at Pools with his younger brother, Oscar, playing for the Pools Youth side and recently being called up for England School Boys.

Graeme Lee said:

"We have been in talks with Boro for a while so I am delighted to get Isaac over the line. He is a real attacking threat and can play in several positions. He has shown over the last few weeks that he can create and score, and I expect him to make a big impact on our side."
 
Isaac Fletcher added:
"I am delighted to sign on loan for Pools. I obviously know the Gaffer after working under him at Boro. I know what he expects from his teams, he has high standards and this is a great opportunity for me. I have set myself targets in both goals and appearances, and I want to give my all for this team."
 
Fletcher will wear the number 21 shirt for Pools and will be available for Saturday's fixture against Exeter, subject to FA clearance.
