HARTLEPOOL United have made their second summer foray into the transfer market by signing midfielder Simon Walton.

The much-travelled player, whose previous clubs include Leeds United and Charlton Athletic, joins boss Neale Cooper’s side following his release from Plymouth Argyle.

Walton, 24, told the Mail: “I was aware of Hartlepool United’s interest at the start of the week and once I met Neale Cooper it did not take long for me to say yes.”
