POOLS IN ‘BLACK-UP’ RUM­PUS

The Football League Paper - - NEWS -

HARTLE­POOL fans have been warned not to ‘black up’ for next Satur­day’s trip to Carlisle.

There were claims sup­port­ers were set to do so as part of a Bob Mar­ley-themed fancy dress away day.

Pools fans wear fancy dress to their last away game. But cam­paign­ers Kick It Out have ad­vised Carlisle to refuse en­try to any­one who dons face paint to look like the reg­gae singer.

John Pear­son, a Pools fan who or­gan­ised the fancy dress, said: “There was never any in­ten­tion to black up. ”
