The 26-year-old, who spent the second half of the National League season at Victoria Park, has signed for the Pools after his one-year-deal at the Hawks expired.

Kabamba moved to the Hawks last summer, following his Pompey release.

However, the ex-Hampton & Richmond marksman endured a difficult period at Westleigh Park, scoring five goals in 29 appearances.

Following his move to Hartlepool, the front man scored seven goals in 17 appearances and quickly established himself as a fans’ favourite as Craig Hignett’s side finished 17th in the National League.

During his time at Fratton Park, Kabamba made six appearances without scoring.
