Hartlepool United saviour Ronnie Moore has left Eastleigh after only three months in charge of the National League club.
The 63 year-old cited "personal circumstances" for his decision to leave which comes just days before Sunday's FA Cup second round tie against Halifax.
An Eastleigh FC statement read: “The club would like to announce that due to personal circumstances over the past few weeks the club have agreed to terminate Ronnie Moore’s contract with immediate effect.”
