RUFC - Focus On . . . . .
Our last pre- season friendly sees Danny Wilson bring his Hartlepool team to Don Valley Stadium on Saturday. Hartlepool are currently playing in League One and play their home games at Victoria Park, which famously staged a Middlesbrough game in the 1986/87 season after they were locked out of their then home, Ayrsome Park by the bailiffs. In 1993, Hartlepool went into a fourth round FA Cup game with Sheffield United with a winding up order hanging over their heads but local business man, Harold Hornsey turns up trumps and rescued the club. In 1995 he built the East Stand and also put in a new covered terrace at the town end and renames the stadium Victoria Park. In 2002, H`angus the Monkey, the teams mascot, was elected as Mayor of Hartlepool under the slogan 'free bananas for schoolchildren.`! Head to Head The last time these two teams met in the League was in 2005/06 in League One and both games were 0-0. The teams actually met the season after that in the League Cup at Victoria Park with 'Pool winning 3-1. Lee Bullock put the home side in front and Delroy Facey equalised fourteen minutes later. Just before half time David Foley put the home side back in the lead and they got another from Ritchie Humphreys in the sixty-seventh minute. In the League, the Millers have won twenty-eight games against 'Pool with Hartlepool winning twenty and there have been fourteen draws In the FA Cup, there have been three drawn games with Hartlepool winning one and Rotherham two In the League Cup there have been two draws and two wins for the Millers In other competitions, Hartlepool have won the only game In all, the Millers have won thirty-two games, 'Pool twenty-two and there have been nineteen draws.
