Andy Monkhouse: Stays on at Victoria Park

Pools, who were relegated from League One this season, have exercised options in the duo's contracts to keep them at Victoria Park for another 12 months.

The north east club, who are currently looking for a new manager, have also offered new contracts to goalkeeper Andy Rafferty, full-back Jordan Richards and midfielder Greg Rutherford.
