Pools earned their shot at League Two in dramatic fashion with a penalty shootout victory over Torquay United in the National League promotion final in June but no fewer than 13 of Pools’ promotion winning squad have left the club this summer including goal scoring duo Luke Armstrong and Rhys Oates.

It has left Challinor frustrated as his side try to negotiate their way through to the January transfer window where he can no doubt reassess his squad despite Pools making a positive start to life back in the Football League.

But here at The Mail we thought we would look back at some of those players who helped get Pools back to the big-time last season and see where they’re at now following their Victoria Park exit.
