Versatile midfielder signed by Hartlepool united

Hartlepool United have signed Nathan Sheron, a talented Oldham Athletic midfielder.

The 26-year-old is Darren Sarll’s third summer signing, joining Pools for an undisclosed cost. Sheron, who can play in midfield or defence, has spent the previous two years at Boundary Park, appearing 91 times and scoring nine goals.

Over two seasons in Greater Manchester, he consistently started, playing 46 games in his first year and 45 in his second, when Oldham finished tenth.

Before that, Sheron developed at Liverpool’s academy, then spent five years at Fleetwood, where he made a few League One appearances and had loan stints at Southport, Walsall, and St Mirren.

In 2021, he left Lancashire for Harrogate, where he made 22 League Two starts.

He is Sarll’s third summer signing, joining AFC Fylde forward Luke Charman and Halifax midfielder Jack Hunter.

Sheron, like his fellow new additions, confessed that the new manager’s style of play influenced his decision to sign a contract in the North East.

“I’m proud to be here,” he stated on the club’s website.

“I was really keen to come here after meeting with the manager; the manner he wants the squad to play suited me perfectly.

“I can’t wait to get started; it looks like a nice place to be.

The stadium and pitch are absolutely fantastic, and I’m eagerly anticipating the season’s kickoff!

Meanwhile, Darren Sarll was overjoyed to have signed a player who he believes will bring more energy and dynamism to his team next season.

He stated: “Nathan’s acquisition was the culmination of a lengthy process in which both parties worked incredibly hard to guarantee a very favourable end.

“Nathan is at a turning point in his career, and I believe his best season will be ahead of him in a Hartlepool United shirt.

“He will provide combativeness and a desire to dominate the middle third of the pitch, giving us the energy to reclaim possession and attack swiftly.

“When you look at Nathan’s past and the coaches he has worked under, you can instantly see the type of perseverance and character he possesses.

“Myself and Joe Monks made Nathan a priority from the outset, and it’s really encouraging that we can recruit this calibre of player.

“His winning mentality contributes to the dressing roommate, which is expanding with these psychological characteristics.

Although the transfer window has been quiet, it’s clear that the players we’ve targeted to boost our success are well worth the patience and wait.
