Neale Cooper reveals starting line-up for friendly
Neale Cooper has gone for a mixture of youth and experience in his starting eleven for tonight’s friendly game against Telstar in Heiloo.
The Pools boss is keen to give the majority of his squad at least forty-five minute on the pitch this evening and is looking for a high tempo workout against the Dutch outfit.
Scott Flinders will not be involved due to a slight thigh strain so 16-year-old keeper Dominic Scott steps in for his first senior start, protected by a back four which will include Jordan Richards and Paul Johnson.
New signings Jonathan Franks and Simon Walton both start in midfield, while fellow new arrival Steve Howard is partnered in attack by Luke James.
Pools: Scott, Richards, Collins, Johnson, Horwood, Franks, Sweeney, Walton, Poole, Howard, James.
Subs:Hartley, Holden, Austin, Baldwin, Buddle, Murray, Humphreys, Monkhouse, Rutherford, Nish, Wignall.
