Curtis Woodhouse, the footballer-turned-boxer, says he has has applied for the Hartlepool United manager’s job.
Currently manager of Bridlington Town, Woodhouse claims to have submitted his interest in the position, but has not received a reply from the club. However, Pools officials are bewildered by his claims and insist there has been no application made from Woodhouse.
On Twitter, he wrote: “I applied for the Hartlepool job, a club in absolute free fall with serious financial problems, in a right mess. I’d do it for free to get a opportunity and show what I could do, never got a reply, not a thing. I thought I would be just what they needed.’’
And Woodhouse has since deleted his tweet.
The decision to appoint a replacement for the sacked Craig Harrison lies with chairwoman Pam Duxbury. She has put Matthew Bates in caretaker charge and that situation appears to be set to remain. With the club’s future in serious doubt, Duxbury has not made a managerial search a priority.
Both Ronnie Moore and Lee Clark have offered to work for free. Clark wanted to be manager, while Moore is willing to help Bates and the club in any capacity.
