Pools look at keeper
With Pools a little short of goalkeeping options in April 1995, Keith Houchen took the opportunity to look at Blyth's Paul O'Connor on a non-contract basis. He made a solitary appearance that season, in a fine 3-0 win against Lincoln, but was back at the Vic later in the year when he signed part-time terms while continuing to work at Wilkinson Sword.
