We are delighted to announce that an agreement has been made with Nicky Featherstone for the midfielder to sign a new two-year contract with the club.

the Pools squad for many seasons and captained the side on several occasionsduring our 2020/21 promotion campaign.
Nicky, made his first appearance back in November 2014 againstNewport County and has since gone on to make 294 appearances for the club.
The midfielder started his career at Hull City making 8 appearances
and then went on to play over 400 career games for Grimsby, Hereford, Walsall, Scunthorpeand Harrogate Town and Pools.
A stalwart in his midfield role, Featherstone has found the back of the net 16 times during his Hartlepool career including five during last year's National League campaign.
We spoke to Nicky Featherstone regarding his new deal:
‘I am delighted to reach this agreement with the club. It's
certainly exciting times for everyone involved and we are looking to continueon from last season's success.
I have loved every moment at Hartlepool and despite it being
such an odd season, seeing all the fans in Bristol, after sealing promotion,just makes all us eager to start the new campaign”
Dave Challinor gave his reaction:
Since joining the club, Feaths has been involved in almost
every game. He is massively important to how we play, and we are delighted to
see him sign on for the next two seasons. He has been throughout the lowest of
the lows and the highest of the highs with this club and to have him back inthe Football League is massive for us.
