Pools Women To Face Promotion Rivals

30 November 2019

Pools Women will face a stiff examination of their title

credentials on Sunday when they make the trip to face rivals Harrogate Town at The

CNG Stadium (2pm kick-off).

The hosts currently sit second in the NERWFL Premier Division

table having won four of their six games so far this season and they thumped

York City 8-0 last time out in the league.

Pools are seven points behind Town but have three games in hand

after enduring a frustrating opening period to the campaign which has seen them

play just three times in the league to date.

However, Jonathan Gibbon-Hayes' side will approach the weekend's

encounter with confidence and know that collecting three points would send out

a big message to the rest of the division.

“Harrogate will provide us with a big test but I am looking

forward to seeing the players play in a big stadium and hopefully putting on a

show,” he told us.

“We had a friendly with Leeds United last weekend to keep

our fitness ticking over and if we play anything like we did in that game then

we'll give ourselves a big chance of getting the points.

“Harrogate can go top of the league with a win so this is an

opportunity for us to make a statement and big games like this one are one of

the reasons I love being a Manager so much.

“I have confidence in my players and, after a brilliant week

on the pitch for the First Team and the Youth Team, it would be nice if we could

complete the treble with a win of our own on Sunday.”

The game at The CNG Stadium kicks-off at 2pm on Sunday andentry is free for all supporters.
