Hartlepool United Football Club is an English association football club based in Hartlepool, North East England and currently play in League One. Fred Priest, who led the team to second in the North Eastern League in the 1909–10 season,[1] was elected as the club's first manager in August 1908.[2][3] The club was managed by Cecil Potter when it was named as a founder member of the Football League Third Division North for the 1921–22 season, in which the team finished in 4th position.[1][4] The club went throughout the period of 1940–43 without a manager due to the Second World War but appointed Fred Westgarth in August 1943.[5][6] Under the management of Angus McLean, the club won promotion to Division Three from Division Four after finishing in third place in the 1967–68 season.[1][7]

The 1990–91 season saw promotion gained under the management originally of Cyril Knowles and later Alan Murray.[8][9][10] Mike Newell led the team to promotion to Division Two in the 2002–03, after the season had initially been started by Chris Turner and also included the caretakership of Colin West.[8][11][12][13] After relegation to League Two in 2006, former Northern Ireland international Danny Wilson managed the team as they subsequently won promotion back to League One, finishing in second place.[8][14] Wilson was sacked in December 2008, with the team in the bottom half of the table.[15]
