On This Day

October 15th
1959
End of the line for Middleton
A run of seven defeats in nine games, including a 7-2 hammering at Watford and a 5-1 reversal at Doncaster, saw the board call time on Ray Middleton's spell as Pools manager. Middleton had been handed a difficult task in following Fred Westgarth two years earlier, but the board felt he had been given enough time.
