Pools have this morning added another new face to the squad, with the addition of Crystal Palace midfielder Jake Gray on a month’s youth loan.
After signing a new deal with Palace in the summer, Gray has been on the fringes of their first team squad this season.
A box-to-box midfielder who will bring energy to the side and offer support to the attack, Gray is the type of player Pools Manager Ronnie Moore has been working hard to find.
The 19-year-old has joined up with the Pools squad for training this morning and will be available for Saturday’s FA Cup match with Cheltenham Town this weekend.
The game will see him come up against some familiar faces as Gray spent time on loan at Cheltenham Town last season, making three appearances for the club.
He will wear squad number 30 for Pools.
