POOL have all but secured their place in West Yorkshire League Division One with two wins last week to close out their season.

After beating Wetherby Athletic 3-2 last Wednesday, Pool's final game against Division One rivals Leeds Modernians on Saturday was basically a "winner takes all" match.

Pool had to win, and put in all the effort to that end, and finished with a 3-0 victory.

Pool were always on top, as Mods relied primarily on breaks and the long ball.

Josh Wagstaff opened the scoring with Billy Drake adding a second to give Pool a comfortable half-time lead.

Pool should have had the match sewn up by this time, as they missed several chances to do that.

Mods gave the Pool defence more to think about in the second half, as a few goalmouth scrambles forced them into several desperate clearances, but, as in their recent good run, they were up to the task.

Another fine near post save from keeper Andy Doey was the closest Mods came to scoring, then Ryan Firth fired home a powerful, low left foot shot to give Pool an unassailable three-goal lead which they held on to.

Pool are now three points in front of Modernians who have one match remaining, but would have to win that by eighteen goals if they were to spoil Pool's party.

In the midweek game against Wetherby Athletic, Pool needed to win both if they were to avoid relegation.

But they seemed to have this one in the bag, courtesy of goals from Alex Kondos and Ryan Firth along with a fine near post save from keeper Andy Doey, the home side played some outstanding football.

However, early in the second half, Wetherby pulled a goal back from a long hopeful free-kick, then equalised from an unfortunate own goal.

Pool fought hard for the three points they so desperately needed, so it was no more than they deserved when substitute Jordan Drake fired home from close range following one of many fine runs up the left from Firth.

In the West Yorkshire League Alliance Division Two, Pool Reserves completed their season with a fine 2-2 draw at Wyke.

Goals from Adam Dean and Henry Riley earned the visitors a deserved point.
