A Message from John Askey

23 May 2023

Good afternoon, all - I think we can all agree it was a difficult and heartbreaking end to the season and the time off over the last few weeks has given us a chance to pick ourselves up, reflect and continue the hard work as we prepare for the National League.

I wanted to assure fans that myself, Darren Kelly and all the team are working hard to put plans together to have a strong 23/24 campaign. It’s early days but plenty of conversations are ongoing and we are doing our utmost to assure the right players come to this football club.

We are continuously talking to those players who are now out of contract. It’s all about finding the best deal that is both beneficial to the player and the club.

I’d like to take this moment to thank those who are now moving on for all their efforts during my reign and we wish them every success for the future.

We now know what our league will look like. It’s a tough division but one we want to be challenged in. We know we have the backing of the town and the community, it’s now our job to start the season strong and give them something to shout about.

A strong pre-season is key and we are lining up fixtures and programmes that will give our players the best start. We want any player that puts on that blue and white shirt to have the right mindset and give everything for the badge. We won’t just sign anybody, we take a lot of time looking into each player and seeing how they can add to this squad.

I once again want to thank you all for your continuous support. That last game at Stockport was something remarkable. You gave the team plaudits that probably they don’t deserve but it just shows the commitment and love you have for Hartlepool United.

See you all very soon.
