Meanwhile, Hartlepool's youth team recorded a dramatic victory over Notts County to close the gap at the top of the Youth Alliance League.

After falling behind 10 minutes before half-time, Coleby Shepherd equalised for Pools in the 55th minute.

Jack Leonard then scored a late winner for Hartlepool in the sixth minute of stoppage-time, sending them up to fourth in the North East table, just two points behind leaders Mansfield Town.

It wasn't such good news for Hartlepool's women’s team, though, as the side suffered their third defeat of the season at Harrogate on Sunday afternoon.

Craig Devon’s side went down 3-2 at the The CNG Stadium, despite goals from Alisha Smith and Jade Pye.
