Sporting Memories talk: Brian Clough at Hartlepools United Calendar

14 December 2022 - 14 December 2022
10.30am - 12.00pm


Join our Sporting Memories group for an early Christmas cracker: a special talk on Brian Clough's formative managerial years at Hartlepools United!

Brian Clough and Peter Taylor began their magical football odyssey at the very bottom of the football pyramid. During 19 rollercoaster months at perennial north-east strugglers Hartlepools United, the pair overcame all manner of difficulties to forge a management blueprint that would bring League Championship and European glory to provincial Derby County and Nottingham Forest.

University of Chester senior lecturer Dr Chris Hull is the author of Alchemy: Brian Clough & Peter Taylor at Hartlepools United. Chris will be talking through those early years in the Pitch Gallery from 10:30am. The talk is free to attend.
