Danny Wilson Talks About Maidens

Danny Wilson Talks About Maidens

Danny Wilson has been speaking for the first time since the death of Hartlepool's youngster Michael Maidens.

Wilson told the Hartlepool Mail 'Whatever we decide to do on Saturday it will be in accordance with the wishes of Michael's family.'

'The fans have been terrific, there are flowers at the ground and loads of messages of support for the family, it just showed how highly Michael was regarded by them.

'Hopefully there will be a full house out to pay their respects to a lad who was not just a smashing player but a terrific person.

'Everyone at the club is devastated by what has happened and it is a very difficult time."


The former Sheffield Wednesday and Barnsley boss also thanked Swansea for postponing the game at short notice.

'I have to say that Swansea were extremely helpful on Saturday, straight away they agreed to call the game off and their manager Roberto Martinez and his assistant Graham Jones came to visit us at the hotel.

'That was a terrific gesture and one which we appreciate.

'The police could not have been more helpful to us either, which we were also grateful for.'
