Brad Walker is included in the starting line-up for Pools in their FA Youth Cup at Morecambe this evening (7pm kick-off).
The midfield star has made ten First Team appearances this term after making a breakthrough during pre-season but, at just 17, still qualifies to play in the competition.
John Hewitson is without Johnny Carr who has an ankle injury and Tom Mitchinson who is recovering from cruciate ligament surgery.
Ben Wignall and Jonny Wright are both ineligible to play in the FA Youth Cup because they are in the third year of their scholarship with the Club.
Pools: Foden, Harbottle, Turner, Nearney, Nellis, Walker, Green, Bridges, Halpin, Wood, Smith.
