Hartlepool United has sacked its first team coach John Hughes.

The Scotsman only took over at Victoria Park last November, but he was unable to save Hartlepool from relegation to League Two.

Former Pool player Mickey Barron has also lost his job on the coaching staff.

The club have thanked the pair for their efforts in a statement late this afternoon and said there would be no further comment.
