Poole dual-registers ahead of Stalybridge clash

Whitby Town manager, Chris Hardy has confirmed that defender, Jamie Poole, has dual-registered elsewhere in a search for more game time.

The popular centre-back has struggled to gain a place in the starting eleven at the start of the current campaign and feels that having the opportunity to play away from the Turnbull Ground is the best option for him.

Poole will however, still be an option for Chris Hardy should he feel the need over the remainder of the season in the Evo-Stik Premier.

Fellow centre-half, Jack Vaulks is in-line to feature this evening. The promising youngster joined the Blues on an initial months loan deal from Darlington but has only made one start so far.

The Seasiders will however, remain without the experience provided by Lee Bullock who is still recovering from injury after making a promising start to the current campaign.

Chris Hardy will also find himself without goalkeeper Jack Norton, who picked up a muscular injury in last Tuesday’s excellent team performance at Matlock Town.

More experience is also missing in midfield with David McTiernan continuing to be sidelined. There is also a worry for club captain, Dale Hopson.

This may well require a last minute check to be made before the team sheet is published tonight, as to whether or not the central-midfielder will be available tonight.

Admission at the Turnbull Ground this evening is Adults £10, Concessions £6, U18s £3 and U16s FREE (with a paying adult).

There will be LIVE commentary on Yorkshire Coast Radio Extra with Andrew Snaith, Paul Connolly and Liam Ryder as well as updates on Facebook and Twitter.
