On This Day

October 31st
1989
Time running out
Another home defeat for Bob Moncur's Pools side as Cambridge became the latest team to leave the Vic with a win. Pools had gathered just six points from their opening 14 games and the knives were out for the manager. Victory against Wrexham four days later gave Moncur a stay of execution before a run of defeats signalled the end.
