Cooper looks at striker
Kevin Betsy arrived at the Vic for a short trial with a view to a permanent move. The striker, who had scored twice against Pools nine months earlier, was leaving Barnsley and was keen to keep his options open. In the end he spent around a month at the club before opting to join Oldham Athletic.
