Pools sign Kyle Letheren

16 June 2022

Hartlepool United are delighted to announce the signing and appointment of Kyle Letheren. Letheren will combine playing with the goalkeeper coaching role as part of Paul Hartley's new-look staff.
Letheren started his career in Swansea's academy, and after spells as a back-up 'keeper for Barnsley, Doncaster, and Plymouth, he moved north of the border to join Kilmarnock. Three seasons later, Letheren joined Dundee where he enjoyed a successful spell under Hartley.
Spells at Blackpool, York, Plymouth, Salford, Chesterfield, and Morecambe followed, and Letheren will now provide support for Ben Killip in the 2022/23 season.
In 2014, Letheren was called up to the Wales squad by Chris Coleman, but was an unused sub as Gareth Bale's brace gave Wales a 2-1 win over Andorra.
Kyle added: 
‘I am delighted to join the club. I know the manager really well and we enjoyed a successful spell back at Dundee. I am looking forward to supporting the goalkeeping team and helping the team the best I can’.
Paul Hartley added: 
'Delighted to bring Kyle to the club. He is someone I know well from my time at Dundee. A good goalkeeper with good experience and I know he’s going to work well with Ben and the rest of the group. He has the qualities and attributes to be a great goalkeeping coach and I know how excited he is to get started.'
