The inspiration for the launching of Hartlepool United was the West Hartlepool club which won the Amateur Cup in 1904-05. They had been in existence since 1881 and their cup success led in 1908 to the formation of the new professional concern which first joined the North-Eastern League. In those days they were known as Hartlepools United and won the Durham Senior Cup in their first two seasons.
