Raj Singhs’ takeover of Hartlepool complete

News have been confirmed tonight that Raj Singh has now formally completed his takeover of Hartlepool United.

The Football Association and The National League have now given the green light for the takeover to go through and Mr Singh has been installed as the club’s new chairman with immediate effect.

As quoted in an article on the club website:

“I am extremely proud to become the Chairman of a Club with such a rich history and a passionate and loyal fanbase,” said Singh.

“We know that this is the first time that this Club has been outside of the Football League and, first and foremost, our target must be to get back there as soon as possible.

“I am pleased that the efforts over the last three months have brought this together but I know that the real hard work starts now.

“We’re already looking at making the appointment of a new First Team Manager and we met with Matthew Bates earlier on Friday to discuss it with him.

“It was only fair that we did that to allow Matthew to put his case forward on the back of the results achieved in recent weeks to secure our place in the National League.

“We will be talking to other people about the vacancy as well because we have to make sure we get the right man for the job and let him get on with it as soon as possible.

“The Club can’t afford to be left behind in terms of player recruitment or preparations for the new season so we have to act swiftly and decisively on that appointment.

“I would like to thank all fans for their support and encourage you to keep right behind the team and the Club as we look to move forward with purpose and ambition.”
