Houchen snaps up experienced keeper
Having used no less than six goalkeepers in the previous season, Pools were in the market for some stability, even if it was only short term. That stability looked to have arrived in the shape of former Middlesbrough legend Stephen Pears, who arrived from Liverpool. Sadly, things didn't go to plan, and Pears retired less than halfway through his first season.
