Goalkeeper Andy Rafferty has had his Hartlepool United contract cancelled by mutual consent.
The 26-year-old joined Pools in the summer of 2010 when he was snapped up from Guisborough Town and went on to become deputy to Scott Flinders at Victoria Park.
Rafferty recovered from a serious knee injury which ruled him out of the entire 2012/13 campaign and went on to make three starts for the First Team at the end of last term.
A regular for the Reserves, Rafferty found opportunities to play regular First Team football limited and made seven appearances during his four years at the Club.
Everyone at Hartlepool United would like to wish Andy all the very best for the future.
