Former Hartlepool United veteran Ritchie Humphreys has been elected as the new Chairman of the Professional Footballers' Association.

The 35-year-old, who spent 12 years with Pools from 2001 to 2013, succeeds Clarke Carlisle in the role after being chosen by the PFA's Management Committee.

Humphrey's told the organisation's official website: "I am fully committed to the role that the PFA plays across all areas of football and will make every effort to continue the great work which Clarke has put in during his time as Chairman.”

Cooper could add to Hartlepool squad

Hartlepool United manager Colin Cooper says he could still add to his squad before the end of the current transfer window.

Among the new arrivals is defender Christian Burgess, who has joined on loan from Middlesbrough. Striker Nialle Rodney has also arrived at Victoria Park as a free agent. But Cooper says he's still looking at potential signings.
