Youth Team At Home On Wednesday

11 March 2020

Pools Youth Team are on home soil again on Wednesday

afternoon when they host Boston United at in the NLFA Premier Division at

Welfare Park in Blackhall (1pm kick-off).

Ian McGuckin's youngsters are bang in-form at the moment

having won six out of their last eight games to push themselves back in to

contention near the top of the table.

Pools currently lie fifth but have games in hand on all of

the top three and know they have the opportunity to close the gap further if

they can win again this afternoon.

They are going in search of a league double over their

visitors after running out comfortable 5-0 winners when the sides met in Lincolnshire

at the end of January.

However, McGuckin has urged his players not to take anything

for granted and make sure the standards they have set since the turn of the

year are maintained against The Pilgrims.

“If we can keep on winning then we know we can push ourselvesright in to the mix,” he told us.

“At the minute, games can't come quick enough for the lads –

it's always like that when you're high on confidence, scoring goals and winning


“We've just got to make sure we keep our focus, show nocomplacency and just concentrate on one game at a time.”

Kyle Wilson is back in training after a leg injury and could

feature but Conner Rennison (knee), Oliver Thompson (Achilles) and Adam

Campbell (knee) are all still sidelined.

Kick-off is 1pm and entry to all supporters is free at

Welfare Park so please head over and give the youngsters some support if you
