MIDDLESBROUGH’S injury crisis has proved to be good news for one Hartlepool footballer.
Boro teenager Bryn Morris has been included in the squad for Saturday’s FA Cup third round tie against Hastings.
Morris, just 16, is in the Boro 18 who take on the south coast minnows at the Riverside.
Boro boss Tony Mowbray is without 14 players and has turned to Morris and two other prospects Andre Bennett and Jordan Jones.
Morris, a former pupil at High Tunstall College of Science, has been handed the no 29 jersey.
