Umbro Ball Ready For FA Cup Action

2 November 2012

Pools players have been training with a new ball this week in readiness for Saturday's FA Cup tie against Chesterfield at The Proact Stadium.

The goalkeepers were first to get their hands on the Umbro Neo Pro 2 matchballs, which are said to be a little lighter than the regular Mitre Delta V12 used for League games. 

 Made from soft leather, the fourteen hand-stitched panels on the ball apparently allow for "a more natural touch which in turn means more power applied in your passing and shooting". 

"They seem to be getting smaller every year," Scott Flinders told us as he got to grips with the new ball on the training ground this week.
