We take a look beyond the First Team to see how the other teams across the Club performed during the 2017/18 campaign.
The Reserves struggled for consistency throughout the past season – both in terms of results and then, more recently in terms of selection.
More often than not, it was a young side being fielded by Pools Reserves and the extra experience in opposition told on a number of occasions.
It was another cracking season for Andy Stuart’s Ladies as they consolidated their position in the North East Regional Women’s Football League Premier Division with a third-place finish.
After two successive promotions that has to be seen as further progress for the team who fired an impressive 73 goals in their 16 league games during 2017/18 and also inflicted champions Norton’s only defeat.
Sadly, the Youth Team struggled to bring their form in the cup competitions back in to the bread and butter of their league outings.
Having enjoyed excellent runs in both the Youth Alliance League Cup and the FA Youth Cup (in which they were knocked out by Steven Gerrard’s Liverpool at The Vic), a more youthful look to line-ups in the latter part of the season made it more difficult.
