Pools made a move to bring the then Havant & Waterlooville manager to Victoria Park last season though opted to appoint Richard Money at the last minute after failing to agree a compensation fee with Havant.

Less than a year down the line and Hartlepool are once again searching for a new manager with Bradbury now available should the club wish to reignite its interest in the former AFC Bournemouth man.

Bradbury joined Eastbourne following his departure from Havant before being released on ‘amicable terms’ by the club as they struggle to combat a £40,000 monthly shortfall. Bradbury could emerge as one of the contenders to be Craig Hignett’s replacement with the club conducting interviews this week.
