Youth Team Back In Action On Wednesday

Ian McGuckin, Hartlepool United

Pools Youth Team will look to extend their brilliant unbeaten run to eight games when they host Solihull Moors in the NLFA Northern Division in Blackhall on Wednesday afternoon (1pm kick-off).

The youngsters have been in fabulous form since the turn of the year and have won five of their last seven ahead of today’s encounter with The Moors at Welfare Park.

Ian McGuckin’s side have been free-scoring too, firing a staggering 29 goals in their last seven outings so will approach their latest assignment high on confidence.

“The lads have been doing ever so well but it’s about carrying that on now,” McGuckin told us.

“We’ve played our way in to decent position in the league table now and it’s all to play for so if we can maintain the consistency we’ve shown over the last couple of months we’ll be in contention.

“We’ve won three on the bounce at home so we’re approaching today’s game in high spirits but we know that we have to be just as focused and just as determined as we have been if want another positive result.”

Kick-off is at 1pm and entry to all supporters at Welfare Park is free so please pop along and support the youngsters this afternoon if you can.
