Defender Josh Nearney has now left Pools and signed for Whitley Bay on a free transfer.

The 21-year-old signed professional terms with Pools in the summer of 2014 but has found First Team opportunities limited so has opted to move on.

Nearney initially joined Pools as an Under-16 after leaving Middlesbrough and he became a regular in the Reserve Team where he played both at centre-back and right-back.

A graduate of the famed Wallsend Boys Club, Nearney spent time on loan with The Bay last term and has now agreed terms on a permanent move to Hillhead Park.
