Hartlepool United have started to reshape their squad as six players have been shown the Victoria Park exit door.

Pools boss Danny Wilson has wasted little time in informing those that have no future at the League One club now their contracts have expired.

Scott Allison, Robbie Elliott, Ali Gibb, Tom Haigh, Michael Rae and Stephen Turnbull have all been told they are not to be offered fresh terms.

Wilson has, though, elected to present striker David Foley with a new deal following his three goals in the season just past.

The club have also triggered contract clauses to award new deals to Willie Boland, James Brown, Gary Liddle, Michael Mackay, Andy Monkhouse, Michael Nelsen, Joel Porter, Matty Robson and Martin Young.
