Turner leaves Pools despite solid start

19 August 2010 11:09
Mick Wadsworth has been placed in caretaker charge of Hartlepool United after Chris Turner resigned from his position as director of sport with immediate effect. Turner had been in charge of the first team since December 2008 when Danny Wilson left the club. The news comes as something of a surprise as Pools secured a shock Carling Cup victory against Sheffield United earlier this month and have drawn both of their League One fixtures. Turner's side avoided relegation from League One last season on the final day of the campaign after having three points deducted by the Football League.
