Livingston FC can announce that defender Tom Parkes has left the club to join English National League side Hartlepool United.
Tom’s family are all back in England and with his contract coming to an end in the Summer, the opportunity to return closer to them was one that understandably appealed to the player.
Tom made 27 appearances for the club, scoring 3 times however, it will be that last-gasp header in Dingwall in the 2021/22 season that will live long in the memory of the Lions faithful – sending the ball into the top corner from 12 yards to spark scenes amongst the travelling support.
Manager David Martindale said: “I wish Tom nothing but success. His time at Livingston has been hampered by long term injuries which has been a real shame for both him and the club.
“He is a top, top professional and gives you everything every day and will be a huge miss around the club.
“I can’t speak highly enough of him as a individual and would never have stood in the way of him being able to be closer to his family.”
Tom departs with the very best wishes of everyone here at Livingston FC.
