Stuart Parnaby has been released by Hartlepool after the club decided they would be having a ‘clear-out’ of players. The former Birmingham man is one of 8 to be let go.
The right back missed almost the entire season due to a knee injury and only managed 5 appearances. It is no wonder then, that the axe has fallen on Stuart as he is unable to remain fit for a full season.
It is close season for most Football League clubs now and we are seeing a lot of players being released, some may well not find another club – especially players who are injury prone and lower clubs can’t support the wages.
I don’t know the details of his contract but it is well worth pointing out that short term deals are best suited for players who are injured a lot during their career, I would be surprised to see any club take on Parnaby on a long term deal now.
The right back is now 32 years old and played for Birmingham between 2007 and 2011. He made just 34 league starts in a spell that saw him also struggle with some injuries whilst in the Midlands.
He since returned to his hometown club Middlesbrough where he then moved to Hartlepool, after just two years and 17 appearances. I’m sure Parnaby would have liked many more games in his career but unfortunately again that seems like it won’t be the case as he career nears it’s end.
