The Giant Killers

Every F A cup slaying since 1888


Hartlepool came into being in 1908 and had been a Football League club for four years before they first reached the F A cup competition proper in 1925. The club has spent the vast majority of their league existance struggling at the wrong end of the basement division with several applications for re-election to show for it back in the days before promotion to the League. In the cup their greatest day came with a comfortable defeat of Stoke in 2009.
