DONCASTER Rovers left-back Danny Amos has joined Hartlepool United for the rest of the season.

Pools boss Richard Money has added the 19-year-old youth team prospect to his squad and he is in contention to start in the weekend’s FA Trophy home game with Telford.

The Northern Echo:

PUSHED UP: Mark Kitching

Money is ready to push Mark Kitching further forward, into an advanced role on the left side of a three-man midfield, after landing Amos.

He told the club’s website: “In my time at the club, I feel that his work in the opposition half of the pitch has shown a great deal of potential.

“With that in mind, I am hoping that the signing of Danny will not only give us one signing at left-back but another signing in a rejuvenated Mark Kitching higher up the pitch on the left.”

Money is hoping to add two more recruits to his squad in the coming week. Skipper Andrew Davies left the club on Monday with his contract cancelled amicably.

The manager said: "We are here to build. We are here to get better.

"We want to create a young, vibrant environment. Not the last resting camp for players.

"We want players to have a next step, whether that be coming from a parent club or a second chance.

"The North-East is full of players who can't get in to the top teams and they are the players we want to give an opportunity to.

"We want this club to have a vision, giving young people a chance.''

Money has been able to work with his squad on the training ground this week, his first real stint where he can impress his ideas after a busy run of games.

The manager admitted: "Time on the training pitch is important. I think it is just, don't let the knocks take us too far backwards.

"We have made some good strides in the last two games - this is not going to change overnight.

"There has been a general downward spiral here over a number of years. We will rebuild as quickly as we can.

"At some stage the club will, I would suggest, will get it out there that we have a vision, a mindset.''

Pools have reduced ticket prices for the weekend’s tie to £10 and £5.
