SAM EXITS IN POOLS SHAKE-UP
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.”
