Pools sign Menayese

18 July 2022

Hartlepool United are delighted to announce the signing of Rollin Menayese.
The defender joins on a season-long loan from fellow League Two side Walsall FC.
Born in DR Congo and raised in Wales, Menayese was part of Cardiff’s youth academy. While in the academy, he captained the under-18 side and made three appearances for Wales’ under-17 side, featuring against England, Estonia, and Spain.
Menayese started his senior career with Weston-super-Mare, before moving on to Bristol Rovers in 2017. He enjoyed loan spells at Swindon and Aldershot while with the Gas, eventually joining Mansfield on a permanent deal in 2020.
Loan spells at Grimsby and Walsall saw him join the latter permanently in 2022, and he’ll now spend the season at the Suit Direct Stadium.
Rollin added:
"I am delighted to be here. I spoke to the Manager last week and he spoke to me about the ambitions of the football club and the way he wants to play. After speaking to him, it was a easy decision. I love to defend and I want to give my all for this team."
Paul Hartley commented:
"We are delighted to bring Rollin in. He is a still a young lad but he has plenty of experience in this league. He loves to defend but has great athleticism. He brings a strength and presence to our backline. We’re excited to work with Rollin as we continue to prepare for the new season."

Menayese's transfer will be subject to EFL clearance and he will take up the number 23 shirt this season.
