Amble teenager Luke James helped fire Hartlepool United to their first win of 2014, scoring in this afternoon’s 2-0 home victory over York City in Sky Bet League Two.

The 19-year-old opened the scoring for Pools in the 82nd minute with a fine 20-yard finish from the edge of the box after a good knock-down from Jack Baldwin.

It was his 11th of the season and his first for the club since the 2-0 win over Northampton Town back in mid-November and he wheeled away in celebration.

Debutant Jack Barmby added a second in the 89th minute.
