Hartlepool United youngster Darren Holden has been handed a professional contract with the club.

The 18-year-old defender has been offered a deal at Victoria Park after making 14 appearances for Micky Barron’s reserve team and a further 19 for the youth side this campaign.

Holden joined the club as a youngster and made his debut for the first team against Tranmere last April, before holding down a regular place in the reserves this season.
