Stags target Harewood signs for Hartlepool

Mansfield Town striker target Marlon Harewood has today signed for League Two rivals Hartlepool United.

Harewood had been a free agent since his release from Bristol City a fortnight ago and, although Stags confirmed last week they had spoken to him, Pools boss Colin Cooper moved quickly to add his former Nottingham Forest team mate to the squad this afternoon.

Stags boss Paul Cox is hard at work trying to bring in a proven goalscorer, hopefully before Saturday’s trip to Portsmouth.

Meanwhile, winger Lindon Meikle is the next player in the hot seat for the club’s ‘An Evening With...’ series tonight.

The 25-year-old, who has made over 100 appearances since joining in May 2011, will face a range of questions about his hobbies, personal interests and time with the club so far.

Supporters will also have their chance to quiz the flying winger.

The event takes place in the Sandy Pate Sports Bar at 7.30pm). Entry is free for all supporters.
