Youth Team Game Is Postponed

Frozen pitch, Hartlepool United

Pools’ Youth Team game against Boston United in the National League Football Academy due to be played on Wednesday afternoon has been postponed due to a frozen pitch.

Ian McGuckin’s youngsters were schedule to host The Pilgrims at Welfare Park but an early-morning inspection found the Welfare Park playing surface frozen.

There were concerns that the pitch would not thaw in time for the game to go ahead at 1pm so, to prevent unnecessary travelling for the visitors, a decision was taken to postpone the fixture.

As yet, there is no new date for the game but we will bring you details as soon as they are confirmed.
