Double award for Pools

Last Updated: Fri, 08 Nov 2013 10:15

Colin Cooper has been named the League Two Manager of the Month for October, while striker Luke James has won Player of the Month.

After picking up just one win from nine matches prior to October, Cooper steered Pools to four straight victories during the month.

Academy graduate James was a key player for his side, scoring important goals against Exeter, Plymouth and Wimbledon.

Cooper told Sky Sports News: "We've continued to try to do things on the training ground and October has been a very good month for us.

"We weren't disappointed with the start (to the season) performance-wise, but it's nice to get results based on what you believe in."
