Hartlepool United have announced an extended deal for Jamie Sterry.

Former Newcastle United defender Sterry joined South Shields back in October before signing for Hartlepool shortly before Christmas.

He has now agreed a deal with Dave Challinor’s side until the end of the season.

Challinor told the club’s website: “Jamie has come in and done what he’s wanted and that’s to play games. His quality is there to be seen and he’s fitted in brilliantly.

“He’s at home, he’s enjoying playing football and he wants to be successful.”
