Paul Murray is named as the new manager of Hartlepool United.

Hartlepool United have named former player Paul Murray as their new manager.

The League Two outfit, who are currently in the division's bottom two, have been searching for a new boss for the past fortnight following the resignation of Colin Cooper.

Willie Donachie will join Murray as assistant manager at Victoria Park, while Sam Collins and Stephen Pears will remain in their current positions as reserve team coach and goalkeeper coach respectively.

Murray spent three years at Hartlepool as a player before retiring from the game following a short stint at Oldham Athletic.
