Hartlepool let trial pair go

Hartlepool boss Colin Cooper has decided to pass on the opportunity to sign trialists Eugen Bopp and Biko Bradnock-Brennan.

Both travelled with the club for pre-season training in Spain and featured in friendlies against Billingham Town and Bradford Park Avenue, but will not be offered full-time contracts.

"They worked extremely hard and became a good part of the group, so we all wish them well in the future," Cooper told the club's official website.
