Pools capture striker
John Bird's attacking options by the arrival of teenage striker Simon Grayson from Sheffield United. The youngster took a while to find his first goal but gradually matured into a very promising player. Sadly, his professional career was cut short by a serious knee injury in August 1989. He played 54 times for the club, scoring 15 goals.
