Paul Murray takes over as manager of Hartlepool United

23 October 2014

Hartlepool United have named Paul Murray as their new manager.

The Sky Bet League Two strugglers parted company with Colin Cooper at the start of the month and Sam Collins has been in caretaker charge for the last four games.

The club have now moved to bring in Murray, who played for the north east club between 2010 and 2013, with experienced coach Willie Donachie as his number two and Collins remaining as assistant first/reserve-team coach.

Pools are currently second from bottom in League Two having won just three games all season and with a goal difference of minus 14.

Murray leaves his role as youth-team coach at Oldham Athletic and will take charge of his first game at Cambridge United on Saturday.
