Sixer’s Hartlepool Soapbox: bravo Benji, bravo (later) France, bad show Byrne’s boys

Margaret Byrne

Not so cool at the Pool, said Peter Sixsmith. Benji Kimpioka was cool, as were others of the young players at Jack Ross’s disposal.

Sixer’s Peterborough Soapbox: relief all round as Cats purr their way to victory

Jake's own three-word verdict: 'Ooh, Bally, Bally'
