Wise head joins club
Experienced and much-travelled midfielder George Smith joined the club on this day in 1977 after a two-year stay at Swansea City. He added some vital experience to the team as Pools enjoyed some moderate progress with a 13th-placed finish in 1978/79. Smith spent a couple of seasons as player-coach before moving to Gateshead.
