Jeff Stelling named honorary president of his beloved Hartlepool

He really does love Hartlepool and now he's going to be going even crazier when they score on Soccer Saturday.

We love Jeff Stelling, in fact, he might just be our favourite person form Hartlepool behind Iron Maiden guitarist, Janick Gers – who I saw at the pub the other day. 

And if you have never seen Soccer Saturday, you may not know that Stelling is a MASSIVE fan of his beloved Hartlepool United and will let your know whenever they score. 

So today must have been the best day of his life as the Sky Sports presenter was sworn in as honorary club president, taking over from Peter Mandelson. 

No doubt that Jeff will be going mental on Soccer Saturday whenever Hartlepool manage to bag themselves a goal or three points.

Speaking to Hartlepool's club website, Stelling aired his delight at taking over the role, saying: "When I was standing on the terraces as a seven-year-old I never dreamt that one day the Club would ask me to be Honorary President.

"It’s sort of an impossible dream really but it’s fantastic and I really appreciate the fact that Russ and the Chairman have offered it to me – I am very grateful indeed.

"I was at the recent game with Wycombe with a lot of my family and they’re all just as pleased and as proud as I am about the news."

While he's only honorary president, we would love to see Jeff move to the dugout and give Pools boss, Ronnie Moore, a hand by shouting stuff at his players.
