I want to thank all involved at Hartlepool United for the past 18 months. I feel now is the time for me to move on to a new challenge.
It has been an unforgettable time which has created memories and friendships which will last forever.
I want to thank the players, football staff, office staff and finally the unbelievable supporters. They have been a huge part to what we have achieved.
