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
The youngsters have been in terrific form since returning
from a Christmas break and are so far unbeaten in 2020 having won their lastthree games.
Last week's sensational 8-0 thrashing of local rivals
Darlington boosted confidence levels further as Ian McGuckin's men aim tocontinue 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 gapon 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 fixturewith 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 inprevious 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 topof 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 Wilsonis also unavailable due to a leg injury.
