LIAM NOBLE has extended his stay at Hartlepool United.

The midfielder, top scorer last season, was out of contract at the Super 6 Stadium, but has now agreed new terms.

He moved to Pools last summer from Notts County and ended the campaign with 13 goals and nine assists.

Pools boss Craig Hignett has been active in building his squad for next season with Ben Killipp replacing Scott Loach in goal this week, as well as landing Michael Raynes and Nicke Kabamba. Myles Anderson, Ryan Donaldson and Gavan Holohan have also signed new contracts.

The club’s ticket office is open on Saturday for fans looking to renew or buy season tickets.
