Whitby Town midfielder Dale Hopson has requested to leave the club.
The former Darlington man had been negotiating an extension to his contract with the Seasiders but after prolonged discussions, he has decided to turn down the offer made by the club.
Last season Hopson enjoyed a successful season scoring 30 goals in all competitions as Chris Hardy’s men just missed out on the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division playoffs, but the 25-year-old wants to test himself at a higher level and believes the time is right to do.
The club doesn’t wish to stand in his way of progressing to a higher level.
Whitby Town's Dale Hopson is transfer listed at his own request, clubs interested can contact vice-chairman Andrew Spenceley on 07880 032792
