POOLS IN ‘BLACK-UP’ RUMPUS
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. ”
