Hartlepool Match Postponed

Today's match at the Liberty Stadium has been mutually postponed due to the tragic death of Hartlepool United's 20 Year old midfeilder Michael Maidens.

Maidens was travelling a Vaxhall Corsa on the A174 in North Yorkshire when the accident occurred. Yorkshire Police have confirmed that the Corsa which Maidens had been travelling in lost control and hit a metal post causing fatal injuries to the passenger.

Both clubs were in mutual agreement that the fixture could not be played out of respect to the Hartlepool Players , Staff and The Family of Mr Maidens.

Swansea City have released a statement regarding the tragic news from Yorkshire.

Swansea's Official Statement read:

"Our thoughts and best wishes are with Michael's family, the club and the players at this very sad time.

It was a mutual decision by the clubs to call the game off"


Everyone at Vital Swansea would like to offer their condolences to his family at a very sad and difficult time.
