Everyone at Heyllo congratulates Hartlepool United FC and their fans for getting back into the Football League. We were glued to the TV as Pools put us through the mill, but even though we’ve got no fingernails left we are delighted to see Dave Challinor’s boys winning promotion after a win on penalties against Torquay.
We know the town will be buzzing for the next few days, but when the dust settles and the hangovers ease we know that promotion will give the town a huge economic boost.
Our Managing Director Nicola Burrows said: “As a Hartlepool business that deals with scores of other businesses across the town, we know how much this promotion means to a lot of people.
“Last week when we were speaking to our partners about recruitment and training opportunities, the first thing they talked about was Pools. It seemed as though everyone in the town was planning on a trip to Bristol!
“From an economic point of view, this football result cannot be underestimated. The exposure the town will get from being back in the Football League is huge, and hopefully if restrictions are lifted in time for the new season we will see fans allowed back into The Vic, not only from Hartlepool but from the visiting teams too.
“That has a knock on effect for the bars and restaurants, the hotels, there are so many businesses that will benefit from this. We know it has been tough over the last 15 months with lockdowns and restrictions, but we’re on the right track to getting back to normal and the fact Pools are back in the Football League give the whole of our local economy a shot in the arm.
“It is fantastic achievement from everyone connected with Hartlepool United to finally regain their place back where they belong, and while we’ll enjoy the rest of the evening by raising a few more glasses to the team, we’ll be back in the office in the morning ready to help businesses in and around Hartlepool with their training and recruitment needs.
“Let’s hope this promotion can help to bring the feelgood factor back to the town and all of the businesses in it.”
