Hartlepool teenager Jack Baldwin hopes the North-East's passion for football can help fill Victoria Park next season.

The 18-year-old defender, scouted by Pools while playing for Faversham last season in the Ryman League, headed north to join the club in the summer and made his first-team breakthrough in December.

Baldwin told the club's official website: "It's a big passion, a big part of people's lives in this part of the country and getting as many people here as possible and getting the atmosphere for us to play in is a massive positive."

The club have followed up last year's award-winning season-ticket deals with a £155 adult's season-ticket for the 2012/13 campaign, while senior citizens will pay £125, under 19s £75 and under 13s £50.

Baldwin added: "I think it's definitely important to try and fill the ground. Obviously as a player, having the support there gives you the adrenaline to drive on and do well."
