Bircumshaw denied
Action from the promotion season as full back Tony Bircumshaw comes close to scoring against Port Vale. New signing Bobby Cummings opened his Pools account but the visitors earned a 2-2 draw. The match was the first of a 16-game unbeaten run that saw Pools emerge from the pack to earn a first ever promotion.
