Video transcript

My name is Lee. I have been going to Hartlepool for ten years. I go with my friends from Warren Road with Darren and Christine.

My favourite game when we played Newcastle in a friendly when Kevin Keegan was the Newcastle Manager. We got beat 4-1 with Damien Duff getting three goals for Newcastle United. Michael Owen and Nicky Butt play for Newcastle.

Last season I go with my friends from Pathways. On the morning I put my Hartlepool T-shirt. I get picked up at lunch time and go to the pub. We play pool and darts and drink and food. We watch Sky Sports News. At 2.15pm we go to the ground. We watch the team warm up and I go for a big hotdog and a drink. I go and sit down with my friends. I watch the game. I look forward to going to Hartlepool. I go to meet my friends and make new friends.
