As reported in the Mail last month, Featherstone will spend his sixth season at Victoria Park, having penned a one-year deal.

Featherstone follows on from Gavan Holohan, Nicke Kabamba, Luke Williams, Myles Anderson, Michael Raynes, Ryan Donaldson and Liam Noble in commiting his future to the club.

A statement confirming the news on the Pools website, said: “Long-serving Pools star Nicky Featherstone has extended his stay at the Super 6 Stadium by agreeing a new contract with the club.

“Featherstone became only the 50th player to hit the impressive 200 landmark in a Pools shirt and the first since stalwart Neil Austin in 2014/15.
