COLIN Cooper has decided against giving contracts to Hartlepool United trialists Eugen Bopp and Biko Bradnock-Brennan.
The pair have been training with the club since the start of pre-season and both featured in the 9-0 win over Billingham Town and the 1-0 win over Bradford Park Avenue.
Cooper met with Bopp and Bradnock-Brennan after the weekend game at Horsfall Stadium and explained his decision not to keep them on.
“They worked extremely hard and became a good part of the group so we all wish them well in the future,” Cooper told the club’s website.
Meanwhile, Tommy Miller and Michael Woods are set to be included in the squad for the next pre-season friendly against Sunderland at Victoria Park on Wednesday night.
The pair both played 30 minutes in the win over Park Avenue.
