Hartlepool United have completed the triple signings of Kieran Wallace, Pete Jameson and Mani Dieseruvwe, ahead of the 2023/24 National League season as confirmed via statements on the club’s website.
The trio have become the club’s latest summer additions, following their relegation into the National League last season and will be eager to help lift the side back into the EFL.
Who are the trio?
Beginning Kieran Wallace, completes a permanent move to the club, following an 18-month spell with Mansfield Town. The left-back made 36 appearances for the club last season and can also play in midfield.
Goalkeeper Pete Jameson was next to arrive, completing a move from Harrogate Town on a season-long loan deal. The 30-year-old will be providing competition for fellow new signing Joel Dixon, following his arrival from Bolton Wanderers.
Finally, Mani Dieseruvwe has completed a permanent move to the club, following his departure from fellow National League side Halifax Town. The forward was the club’s top goalscorer last season and adds to the attacking talents of the side.
Keen to bounce back
Hartlepool United suffered relegation back to the National League last season, following a difficult campaign for the club. They finished 23rd in the division, narrowly missing out on safety, only finishing above Rochdale.
Next season, the football club will be desperate to make their return to the EFL. The fifth tier has seen the likes of Wrexham, Notts County and Scunthorpe United depart, meaning the division as a whole is expected to be more competitive next season.
Personally, I do think the recruitment will be extremely important for Hartlepool United this summer, as the club will be aiming to return to the EFL as quickly as possible.
However, in order to do this, they need to sign the right kind of players. Strengthening the goalkeeper, adding an experienced defender and a goalscorer is certainly the right way to go about their business and I definitely believe each of the three signings will make an impact next season.
