September 8th
1979
A Busy Afternoon
Darlington's Phil Owers keeps out this effort from Keith Houchen in our league clash in 1979. It was an eventful afternoon for the young goalkeeper, who saved a Bob Newton penalty and conceded three goals, including another penalty, before leaving the field injured as Pools won 3-1
