Hartlepool United coaches going behind bars...

Hartlepool United Community Sports Foundation (HUCSF), the registered charity of Pools, will go into Holme House Prison at Stockton to deliver FA Level 1 courses in football coaching.

Starting this month, 16 prisoners will spend two weeks completing the coaching course under Hartlepool United’s Under-16s coach Graeme Clark, supported by HUCSF coach Chris Burton.

Two more courses will take place later this year, which hope to produce 48 newly-qualified coaches.

The initiative is the first by Hartlepool Community Sports Foundation as part of the Twinning Project, supported by the UK’s leading clubs and footballing bodies, which aims to support prisoners while inside and to help find work and reduce the chances of reoffending when they are released.
