HUST stand with Hartlepool United, its players and the vast majority of our football fans in condemning the disgusting incident of racism that occurred during the match this weekend and our thoughts are with the players affected by these unacceptable scenes.

We support the Club’s management condemning the actions so quickly and that they intend to take strong action against those involved. Racism has no place in football or our society and we offer any support the club may need to help stamp out such behaviour in future.
