Youth Team Aim For Four In A Row

12 February 2020

Pools Youth Team will look to make it four wins in a row on

Wednesday afternoon when they welcome York City to Welfare Park in Blackhall

(1pm kick-off).

The youngsters have been in terrific form since returning

from a Christmas break and are so far unbeaten in 2020 having won their last

three games.

Last week's sensational 8-0 thrashing of local rivals

Darlington boosted confidence levels further as Ian McGuckin's men aim to

continue climbing the NLFA Northern Division league table.

Fifth-placed Pools currently lie fifth and six points behind

Wednesday's visitors York so it represents a good opportunity to close the gap

on The Minstermen on whom they also have a game in hand.

“Since the turn of the year you can't fault the lads really,”McGuckin told us.

“The performances and results we've turned out have been

very good so it's all about trying to build on that now but we know that the fixture

with York will be tough because they're also going well.

“Our boys have worked hard and I think now you can see they'readjusting to the level they are playing at every week.

“It's hard for the First Years playing Under-19s football

and it's a lot different for the Second Years to what they have been used to in

previous seasons.

“I think the time we've had in the season so far hasbenefitted the lads and you can see their confidence growing with every game.

“Last week was a brilliant result against Darlington but now

the challenge is to go and do that kind of thing against the sides at the top

of the division and see where it takes us.”

Conner Rennison remains sidelined as he continues his

rehabilitation from surgery on a cruciate ligament rupture, while Kyle Wilson

is also unavailable due to a leg injury.

The game at Welfare Park kicks-off at 1pm and entry to allsupporters is free.
