Hartlepool United boss Danny Wilson says Darryl Duffy will be this season’s League One star player.

Wilson was keen to sign Darryl Duffy this Summer after the striker scored 5 goals in 10 games whilst on loan at Hartlepool.

The Pools’ boss has tipped Duffy to be a star this season and said:

‘He’ll be a Scottish international in the future,’

‘and he’ll have a big impact in League One.’



Duffy also praised Wilson and said:

‘It’s nice to hear Danny Wilson saying good things about me,’

‘I was at Hartlepool for two months last season and I got on with him brilliantly both on and off the park.

‘He has done superbly for Hartlepool and I can’t really praise him highly enough.

‘He has worked with some top-class players in his time – Paolo Di Canio for example – so to get praise from him is nice.

‘I just hope I won’t disappoint.’



At his request, the 23 year-old will wear the Number 11 shirt this season, and he’ll be hoping for better luck than those who’ve worn it before him!

Pawel Abbott had a short stay with the Swans last season while Rory Fallon also had a dissapointing spell before him – 2 players that failed to ever get the full respect from the Swans faithful.
