Pools In Too Deep?

Troubled Hartlepool United have decided to keep the pond that recently appeared from nowhere in the middle of their Victoria Ground pitch.

Groundstaff first thought it was a waterlogged spot but soon realised that a five foot pond had been dug, replete with gravel base and a selection of acquatic plants.

Head groundsman Fred Meek says, “The FA gave us special dispensation to carry on playing around it when we presented evidence that suggested it might have been put there by God.”
