Cooper Sees Big Future For Defender Paul Johnson

Hartlepool United manager Neale Cooper says that he sees a big future for young defender Paul Johnson, despite the defender being sent out on loan this season.

Johnson made a loan move to Darlington in March and has started eight games for the Quakers. Although Johnson is yet to be on the winning side, Cooper says the experience will help develop his game.
