Saddlers edge out Pools
Preseason action from the Vic. Ron Young looks on as Walsall's Nick Atthey clears the ball. Despite an encouraging performance, Pools lost the game 1-0 to their third division opponents. But losing was becoming an all-too-familiar feeling for Pools supporters, and the 1969/70 season would turn out even worse than its predecessor.
