Pools visit Edgeley Park to fight it out using The Hatters to get a place at the date and final with Ashton Gate following Sunday.

The city has received a massive boost from the success of this soccer team this year with spirits amongst he Pools fanbase. Fans will not be at the floor to the match but for those people who’ll be seeing the game or listening to it on the radio, then the Pools has a concept for them.

“Just keep thinking” Challinor stated.

“What we have attempted to do because we have come into the soccer club wasn’t so much decrease anticipation but construct optimism about what we would like to do.

“No matter what happens, this is around the club moving ahead and we all hope we receive the greatest of that in relation to moving up a branch but we have got to continue what we’ve already been doing.

“These upcoming few weeks will probably be the final time that this group of gamers is collectively and that is how football works, it moves quickly.

“We will continue working hard and put all online to perform as best we could for your fans.

“We need one last hurrah to perform in the front of them and there’ll not be any better place to do this than at a marketing final at Ashton Gate.”

The match kicks off at 12pm in Edgeley Park.
