County thrashed Oldham reserves 5-0 last night at Hyde United as David Poole banged in four goals and worryingly for Gary Ablett, a few trialists were hooked with serious injuries.

Although former Newcastle striker Frank Danquah scored the goal of the game as he impressed in his second match for the Hatters in the Senior Cup, Ipswich defender Matt Brown was pulled at half-time with a dead leg, and Southampton forward Jamie White collapsed in a heap with what was later diagnosed as a torn cruciate – for the second time in his career.

Poole opened the scoring on 34 minutes when he rolled the ball past ‘keeper Tony White. The winger got his second 25 minutes into the second-half when he won a penalty and converted.

Danquah then struck with a fine solo effort as he ran from the half-way line before stroking into the far corner from about 18 yards.

Poole’s hattrick was complete when he cut onto his left foot and fired high into White’s goal.

And with 92 minutes on the clock, Poole beat the offside trap to prod home after Danquah’s blocked effort.

Four goals for David Poole. Crikey they must have been bad.

  • Blimey! Poole gets hammered by many County fans but think back to his introduction under Gannon in League Two. He did a job for us. Now think forward to next season in League Two… we may well be beggars.
    I reckon Hancock…er I mean Gannon… will be able to get Poole to do a job again. Same with Griff. All we need to do next year in my book is finish out of the bottom two and both Pool and Griffin are able to help us do that.

  • Sorry Matt, we’re terrible. Roger – you do mean Gannon. Hancock won’t be manager.

  • Jabo, I pray it is Gannon (though on a sensible contract and not as part owner… conerns over that but for another day). Is this just a gut feeling or have you heard something, anything to indicate Jim is ready to step into poor Abletts shoes if 2015 get in?

  • It was gut feeling, then backed up by something I heard from somebody at EP who was right about Ablett becoming manager when the press and YB were raving about Ravanelli and Lennon, which reiterated my gut feeling.
