Hartlepool manager Colin Cooper has resigned after the club went bottom of the Football League.

They lost 3-0 to Carlisle United, who achieved their biggest away win in three years.

The defeat put Hartlepool bottom of the table, and the former Middlesbrough player and coach left his first managerial post.

"We would like to thank Colin for his efforts during the last eighteen months.

“We are glad that we gave him his break in management and would like to wish him every success in the future.”

Pardew: What the papers say

Today's papers Credit: ITV

The Chronicle - Lee Ryder - Alan Pardew's only quick exit from Newcastle United would be to resign from and wave goodbye to a compensation package.

The Mirror - Simon Bird - The Toon Army are furious and the form since last December is that of a side on its way to relegation, but Ashley's axe probably won't fall any time soon.

The Telegraph - Luke Edwards - Ashley to defy supporters and give Pardew until Christmas to turn club around despite dismal defeat at Southampton.

The Guardian - Louise Taylor- Alan Pardew is expected to still be in charge of Newcastle United when Hull City visit St James’ Park on Saturday. Although defeat against Steve Bruce’s side would effectively make Pardew’s position untenable, Ashley, is famously impervious to supporter opinion.
