After prolonged discussions with Dale Hopson re. extending his existing contract with Whitby Town FC, Hopson has declined the offer of a new, improved deal.
The player feels that after an outstanding season, scoring in excess of thirty goals in all competitions, he wants to test himself higher in the football pyramid.
At 25 years old, Dale feels that this is the right time to seek a new challenge.
Whitby Town Football Club will not stand in the way of any player wanting to progress to a higher level of football, if a suitable and acceptable offer is received.
Reluctantly, Whitby Town FC has agreed to make Dale Hopson available for transfer, however the club would like to remind all interested parties that he is still a contracted with Whitby Town FC and should not be approached directly. All enquiries in the first instance should be made via vice-chairman Andrew Spenceley on 07880 032792.
