Pools Women Ready For Tough Test

13 September 2019

Pools Women look to continue their perfect start to the new campaignwhen they make the trip to Farsley Celtic on Sunday (2pm kick-off).

Having followed up their 11-1 thrashing of Carlisle United

in the FA Cup with an 8-0 victory over York City in their opening league game,

Pools will travel to West Yorkshire in high spirits.

They will also be boosted by the return of several key

players, with Caitlin Bates and Robyn Foster returning to the squad and new

signing Savanna Robson available for the first time.

The emphatic nature of their win over York means Pools go in

to the weekend sitting top of the pile but will know they can't afford to take

anything for granted against Farsley Celtic.

The hosts enjoyed an encouraging opening day themselves last

weekend when they picked up an eye-catching 2-1 win away at Harrogate Town so

will hope to build on that against Pools.

“It will be a tough game against Farsley Celtic because they

will be full of confidence after their great win,” admitted Pools boss Jonathan


“However, after scoring 19 goals in two games I have every

faith in the squad that if we stick together and play our own game that we can

come away with the three points.

“It's becoming really difficult to pick a 16 at the moment

with the quality we have in the squad so we'll have some hard decisions to make

before Sunday.”

The game takes place at Throstle Nest at 2pm on Sunday andentry is free to all supporters.
