Hartlepool United are expected to reveal more details about the club's new owners.

Its majority shareholder, IOR (Increased Oil Recovery) has announced that a takeover has been agreed.

A sale had been decided last December to TMH2014 Limited but it was revealed in February that the deal had fallen through.

Chairman Ken Hodcroft has stepped down and IOR, which bought the club in 1997, will relinquish control.

Hartlepool will start the new season with new owners at the helm after the team's dramatic escape from relegation.

Pools fans are hoping the changes will bring new investment.

Moore wants away improvement for Hartlepool

Hartlepool United boss Ronnie Moore says his side must improve their away form in order to stay in the Football League.

Despite a 1-0 defeat at home to Burton Albion yesterday, Pools have won four of the last six games at Victoria Park. In contrast, they have only taken one point from their previous six away games.

Pools are eight points adrift at the bottom of League Two and Moore says Hartlepool need to start earning points on the road to stay up.
