Former Hartlepool United manager Paul Murray has landed a new role at Carlisle United.

Murray, who spent two-and-a-half years at Pools as a player, has joined the Cumbrians as first team coach after they appointed John Sheridan as their new manager last week.

The pair worked together at Fleetwood Town last season where Murray was the club's development team manager.

The 41-year-old was in charge at Victoria Park for just six weeks after being appointed in October 2014.

He was relieved of his duties after Pools' were dumped out the FA Cup by non-league side Blyth Spartans in front of the TV cameras.

A similarly short spell at Barrow followed, where Murray lasted just seven games, before his most recent job at the Cod Army.

Murray's latest role will see him work with the first team at Carlisle in League Two.

Speaking to Carlisle's website on Murray, new boss Sheridan said: “I’ve worked with Paul before and he has the type of character and work ethic I like.

"He’s very highly thought of at Fleetwood, so it’s good for us that he’s agreed to make this move to Cumbria and to get on board with what we want to achieve.

“He’s keen to get started and he wants the same things I do, which is to win games and to get this club back to where we think it should be."
