New faces for Hartlepool

NEALE COOPER has been busy in the transfer market as he looks to bolster his Hartlepool squad ahead of the new season.
The Pool boss has signed striker Paul Robinson after a successful trial at the club and has offered a contract to defender Andrew Jordan.
Former Newcastle forward Robinson has been training with the Victoria Park outfit throughout the summer and has bagged three goals in three pre-season games.
Jordan, the son of former Scotland international Joe, has been on trial with York City and had been offered a one-year deal to stay at Bootham Crescent.
Now Cooper is hoping the lure of playing Second Division football and a longer contract will tempt the ex-Bristol City and Cardiff defender to sign for Hartlepool.
One player who seems unlikely to be joining is veteran front man Bob Taylor despite being linked with a move to the North East side.
The former West Brom forward said: "I've spoken to somebody from Hartlepool, which would be ideal for me because it's going home to the North East where I'm from, but we're settled in the Midlands."
