The 21-year-old joined us on a free transfer in the early weeks of last term and helped us secure our Football League status.

Everyone at the club would like to thank Rakish for his efforts and wish him the best of luck in his future career.


21-year-old Bingham was released by Mansfield Town

The 21-year-old striker has re-joined Pools, where he enjoyed a loan spell last season, after being released by Mansfield Town.


Mansfield Town boss Adam Murray not worried about players jumping ship

Liam Hearn and Rakish Bingham followed Ritchie Sutton and Matt Rhead out the door at Mansfield Town this week for better deals, but boss Adam Murray is more than happy with his potential replacements.


Hearn, coming back from a three-year injury nightmare, signed a deal at Lincoln City while Bingham returned to Hartlepool, where he went on loan in Janury.

“They’ve obviously made their decisions for their own personal reasons, but they were two totally separate cases,” said Murray.

“Rakish’s contract when he first came in was based on it going up, accumulating up to a certain value on appearances made and whatnot.

“And looking at what we are trying to bring in and how last season went, the deals I offered the players were what I thought were value for what they brought to the club. It was up to them if they wanted to buy into what we are doing. The boys have chosen they want to take their futures elsewhere and we respect that.

“Probably over the last couple of years we’ve probably not been wise with our dealings.

“We’ve got a lot of irons in the fire of people that I believe will affect this league, so we will move on very swiftly.

“It was always going to be the case there would be a couple of options.”

He added: “Rakish chose to go back to Hartlepool. I know he spoke to them a couple of weeks ago so his head had been slightly turned. But that doesn’t faze me. I want people here that are going to be kicking the door down to stay.

“The big thing for these young centre forwards is they all want to play and all want to be that first number nine. Rakish (Bingham) was the same. He wanted to be the main man. If I was totally honest with Rakish I didn’t see him as the main starting number nine.

“I think he still needed a bit of time to fill out physically and needed to grow in his game.


I Didn't Need To Think Twice - Bingham

Rakish Bingham became Pools’ first summer signing on Wednesday and then revealed that it was the support of the fans and management that convinced him his future lay at The Vic.
The 21-year-old front man was a big hit during a month on loan with the Club in January and he quickly emerged as one of Ronnie Moore’s biggest transfer targets.

And - speaking exclusively to Pools Player after putting pen to paper on a deal at The Vic - Bingham explained that the confidence shown in him by the boss and the fans made it an easy move to make.

“I didn’t think twice about it, to be honest,” Bingham told Pools Player.

“The supporters here were great with me and the manager has given me his backing so I just can’t wait to get going now.

“It’s been a quick process and I’m just happy it’s over the line now and I wish the season could start tomorrow!

“I want to play as many games as I can, score as many goals as I can, and help the team to finish much higher in the table.”

Wed 20 May 2015

Ronnie Moore has made his first new signing ahead of the 2015/16 in a move that sees a familiar face return to The Vic.

The striker played just five games for Pools during his month-long loan but did more than enough to catch the eye of Moore and his staff.

21-year-old Bingham was released by Mansfield Town at the end of 2014/15 and was keen to make the move to Hartlepool United after enjoying his temporary spell with the Club.

Bingham will now join up with his new teammates when the players return for pre-season training.

The deal is subject to Football League clearance.


Ronnie Moore delighted to net ex-Mansfield striker Rakish Bingham

RONNIE Moore is looking forward to new signing Rakish Bingham hitting the goal trail for Hartlepool United.


The 21-year-old striker has re-joined Pools, where he enjoyed a loan spell last season, after being released by Mansfield Town.

Bingham is Moore’s first signing as he looks to re-build a Pools squad looking to improve on a third-bottom finish last season.

A delighted Moore said: “When he was here during last season he did really well and we missed his pace when he went back.

“He gives us an out, he is always a threat and hopefully there will be plenty more goals to come from him as well.

“He just needs an arm around him. He has spent too much time on the bench at Mansfield and now it is up to myself and Sam to get out of him what we think he’s got in there.

“We know he can become a really competitive player and we’re looking forward to working with him,” added Moore, who was talking to the club’s website.

Bingham, who played five games for Pools during his month-long loan, was released by Mansfield Town at the end of the season.
