Youth Team Ready For Derby Day

4 February 2020

Pools Youth Team are in derby action on Wednesday afternoon

when they play host to Darlington in the NLFA North Division at Welfare Park in

Blackhall (1pm kick-off).

Ian McGuckin's men are in fine form going in to the clash

too having won three of their last four games and scored an astonishing 17

goals in the process.

Their planned trip to Darlington earlier in the season fell

foul to the weather so there is big anticipation as the two rivals prepare to

go head-to-head on Wednesday.

“When the fixtures came out it was the first one we alllooked for obviously so we're excited about the game,” admitted McGuckin.

“With the way things have been in recent years I am not sure

many of the lads will understand the big rivalry that exists but I will be

doing everything I can to make them understand come 12.50pm on Wednesday.

“It's another good opportunity for us to extend the unbeaten

run we've been on and pick up another three points to try and climb the table a

little further, that is the main objective.

“The lads are confident, they've been playing well so we

just want to them to keep that going on Wednesday and hopefully the performance

is of the same level as recent weeks.”

Aaron Willoughby and Harrison Webster are both injury doubts

after taking knocks in training but keeper Grant Lowerson does return to

contention for the game. Conner Rennison and Kyle Wilson are definitely still


Kick-off at Welfare Park is 1pm and entry is free for allsupporters.
