Pools will field a young Reserves side for their last Final Third Development League outing of the season against Mansfield Town at Billingham Town tonight (7pm kick-off).
John Hewitson will once again look after the side, which includes two trialists in the form of goalkeeper Jonathan Barber and forward Luke Armstrong.
Dan Jones, Lewis Hawkins, Josh Rowbotham and Greg Rutherford are the only senior players in the starting line-up, with four Under 16s named on the substitutes’ bench.
“It’s a very young side but the lads are all looking forward to it and hopefully they can give a good account of themselves,” Hewitson said.
“It’s up the pros in the side to help the younger players through if they can and lead by example from the first whistle tonight.”
The game kicks-off at 7pm at Billingham Town and is free to Season Ticket holders; regular admission prices are £5 for adults and £3 for concessions.
We’ll have a full report here on the Official Website following the final whistle.
