Academy sign eight rising stars!

11 July 2023

Hartlepool United FC are delighted to announce that eight new rising academy stars have signed scholarship agreements for the next two seasons.

Academy Manager Andy Lowe ‘We are delighted to announce we have offered eight players full-time scholarships in our academy, who this week start their 2-year journey with Hartlepool United Football Club. This will take our squad to 18 youth players for the 2023/2024 season, and I would like to congratulate and extend a warm welcome to Edi Ormerod; Tyrese Grundle; Ollie Duthie; Joel Ingram; Alfie Steele; Charlie Berry; Joseph Aungiers. The eighth will be joining us next week!'

‘This is the start of an exciting journey for the players, their families, and the football club and the staff are very much looking forward to supporting the young players in their development and building on the successes of last season, where four first-year scholars made their first team debuts, accumulating a number of appearances throughout the season and gaining valuable senior experience’.

‘Our recruitment team and coaches have worked extremely hard behind the scenes the past six months to recruit the new cohort of players and a huge thank you to them and the clubs who have supported us is very much appreciated’.

Finally, I am delighted that we continue our strong relationship with Hartlepool College of Further Education which continues to provide our players with exceptional education provision, expertise, and unwavering support, which is an essential aspect of the wider support all players receive as full-time apprentice footballers. The college also runs its very own football/education programme for aspiring footballers, which saw a number of players represent Hartlepool United Football Club regularly throughout last season which was very pleasing to see.

‘Good luck to all of our youth players this season – Enjoy the journey and have no regrets!’
