The Football League Paper - - NEIL MELLOR -

HARTLE­POOL United de­fender Scott Har­ri­son has been named the Foot­ball League’s Young Player of the Month for March.

A quick and pow­er­ful cen­tre-back, the 21-year-old played a star­ring role for Pools as they won four con­sec­u­tive matches in the sec­ond half of March, lift­ing them out of the drop zone.

The ex-Sun­der­land de­fender said: “I’ve never re­ally won awards be­fore – the last time I did was play­ing for my Sun­day league team!

“It’s mas­sive for me – my fam­ily and friends are so proud.”

Pools boss Ron­nie Moore said: “He’s been fan­tas­tic the last five or six weeks.”
