Cherries Tie For Pools In Capital One Cup

13 August 2015

Pools have been drawn at home to AFC Bournemouth in the Second Round of the Capital One Cup.

Ronnie Moore’s men reached Round Two after Billy Paynter’s second half goal was enough to see them win at Fleetwood Town on Tuesday evening.

It’s the first time since 1974 that the clubs have been paired in this completion – and on that occasion it took THREE replays to separate the sides as Pools prevailed 1-0 at the fourth time of asking.

It also marks a return to The Vic for Cherries legend Steve Fletcher who was born in Hartlepool and began his playing career with Pools.

Second Round ties will be played in the week commencing 24th August.
