Michael Woods has left The Super 6 Stadium after agreeing terms on a move to Harrogate Town.
The midfielder arrived at Pools in the summer of 2014 having impressed during a pre-season trial and went on to make 160 appearances for the Club, scoring 18 goals.
Woods fought back to fitness after suffering a serious ankle injury in 2015 and was the Club’s top scorer last term when he hit double figures in Pools’ debut season in the National League.
However, having asked for a transfer during the summer, Woods hasn’t been a regular in Matthew Bates’ starting eleven during the current campaign and has now been allowed to move on.
“Michael approached us during the summer and expressed his desire to move on,” explained Bates.
“We’ve worked with him in the months since then but last week he repeated his feelings over wanting to leave so the decision was made not to stand in his way.
“He’s been a good player for us over the years but this is probably best for both parties now so we move on and Michael leaves with our best wishes.”
The Club would like to thank him for his efforts during the last four years and wish him all the very best for his future career.
