Hartlepool United can this evening confirm the departure of First Team Manager Keith Curle and Assistant Manager Colin West.
The club would like to place on record its thanks to Keith and Colin and we wish them well for the future.
The club will now move swiftly to appoint a successor to ensure the team has the best opportunity to maintain our Football League status.
Chairman Raj Singh commented:
“This has been one of the most difficult decisions I’ve had to make at Pools. Keith and Colin in so many ways have improved the football club and our culture. They are both consummate professionals and they have genuinely been a pleasure to work with. I will go on record with my thanks to them both and the way that they have conducted business. Unfortunately we have just not seen the required results and I feel we must act now to give the club a chance in the final part of the season. Following the transfer window we believe there is a group of players that can secure our place in the league. We will act swiftly and do all that we can to get an immediate and smooth transition in the manager position.”
