1988
Money well spent?
John Bird signed Russell Doig from Leeds United in 1988, with Pools paying £10,000 for the Scotsman's services. Such extravagance would ideally have been rewarded with performances on the pitch, but the midfielder failed to really establish himself at the club. He is best remembered for a stunning goal at York.
