Former Yeovil Town loan striker Olufela Olomola has signed for League Two new boys Hartlepool United after a successful trial.

The 23-year-old, who was released by Scunthorpe United at the end of last season, played in a 1-0 friendly defeat against Spennymoor United on Tuesday night alongside another former Glovers’ loanee, goalkeeper Adam Smith.

Olomola also scored four times in a 9-1 victory over Northern Premier League Division One West side Runcorn Linnets last weekend.

Pools’ boss Dave Challinor said: “Fela has come in and earned a deal.

“He’s looked sharp in training, took his goals well, granted against lower opposition but has looked a threat.

“We now have to work with him to get out of him what we need over the coming weeks.

“Undoubtedly with the delivery and quality we have in wide areas we will create chances and if he keeps putting himself in the right positions he’ll get opportunities to score.”
