HARTLE­POOL boss Dave Jones wished coach Sam Collins well after re­liev­ing him of his du­ties on Fri­day. For­mer de­fender Collins, 39, made 269 ap­pear­ance for Pools, many as cap­tain, be­fore be­com­ing a coach un­der Colin Cooper in 2013-14.

“We’re chang­ing the cul­ture and the ethos here and when that hap­pens some­times there are ca­su­al­ties, sadly,” said Jones, who took over at Hartle­pool in mid-Jan­uary.

“The club is now head­ing in a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion and we have to make de­ci­sions – no mat­ter how tough they are – that we think are right for the fu­ture.”
