Pools Stars Up For Awards

16 March 2014

James Poole and Brad Walker are both in the running for top prizes at the 2014 Football League Awards to be held in London this evening.

Poole has been placed on a five-man shortlist for Mitre Goal of the Year for 2013 following his stunning strike against Notts County at Victoria Park last February.

Meanwhile, Walker is fighting it out for League Two Apprentice of the Year against Portsmouth’s Jack Whatmough and Plymouth Argyle’s Ben Purrington.

The two Pools stars will be joined at the ceremony by boss Colin Cooper and Academy Manager John Hewitson.

“It’s a great honour for us to have two players up for awards and I’m delighted I get the chance to be there and support them,” Cooper told us.

“Whether they win or not, I think it’s a great accolade for our Club that we have two players on the Football League Awards shortlist and I’m extremely proud of both of them.”
