Pools have pulled off another transfer coup by making midfield star Liam Noble their fifth signing of the summer following his departure from Notts County.

The 27-year-old will bring a wealth of experience to the Pools engine room having played over 300 games at senior level during a career which began with Sunderland.

After coming through the ranks at the Stadium of Light, Noble went on to spend two highly successful loan spells at Carlisle United before making a permanent move to Brunton Park in 2012.

Notts County came calling in the summer of 2014 and he went on to become a real fans favourite at Meadow Lane thanks to his combative style allied with an ability to create and chip in with goals from midfield, hitting double figures during 2015/16.

Noble also has experience of promotion from the National League having led Forest Green to Play-Off Final glory at Wembley in 2016/17 during a season which also saw him voted in to the Team of the Year.

A return to Notts County was confirmed in October 2017 and he once again became a Magpies regular during the second half of last season as they came close to winning promotion to League One.

However, Noble was keen to move closer to his North-East roots and Matthew Bates moved quickly to acquire his services once he became aware of his availability.

The midfielder is a fifth new arrival at The Vic since the end of last season, following in the footsteps of Myles Anderson, Andrew Davies, Paddy McLaughlin and Niko Muir.
