We Must Learn Lessons Quickly - McGuckin

12 September 2019

Ian McGuckin has insisted his Youth

Team players must learn lessons from Wednesday's opening game of the season against

Alfreton Town.

Pools kicked-off the new NLFA

campaign with a 2-1 win at Welfare Park but McGuckin was far from pleased with

aspects of the performance and the discipline of his side, who ended the game

with nine men.

“We have to learn from what happenedbecause it's not something that can continue,” he told Pools TV.

“We tried to manage the game as best

we could but I felt like the first red card did take our focus away from what

we were trying to do and how we wanted to go about it.

“The first thing you think about is

obviously the result but you want a performance to go along with it – we got

one but not the other so we have to move on now.”
