Hartlepool have sacked manager Paul Murray following their shock FA Cup second-round exit at home to Blyth Spartans – after just 45 days in charge.

The 38-year-old former Pools midfielder had just seven games in the Victoria Park hot-seat having taken over from Colin Cooper.

Murray oversaw five defeats, one win and a draw during his brief reign with the club, who sit bottom of Sky Bet League Two and six points adrift of safety.

Assistant manager Willie Donachie has also left, with Sam Collins placed in temporary charge.

A statement on the club’s official website, www.hartlepoolunited.co.uk, read: ” Hartlepool United can announce that manager Paul Murray and assistant manager Willie Donachie have been released from their contracts.

“Sam Collins has been placed in temporary charge of first-team affairs.

“The club will be making no further comment at this time.”
