Ernie looks for exit
Pools striker Ernie Phythian had a transfer request granted on this day in 1967. Phythian, the division's top scorer in the previous season, had been unsettled since Brian Clough's departure and was looking for a new challenge. With Pools rejecting offers, he remained at the club for another four months before leaving to pursue a career in South Africa.
