The former Middlesbrough man was signed by Chris Hardy early in the 2019-2020 season before signing a double registration deal with Thornaby.

He returned to the club last summer, choosing to fight for his place on the team, and making an impact when Lee Bullock and Nathan Haslam took on joint leadership roles.

Cooke’s most memorable moment in a blues jersey was the opening goal in this season’s 3-0 win over Scarborough Athletic at the Towbar Express Stadium on the Turnbull Ground.

However, recently he has been struggling to get hold of opportunities and has decided to move to Pitching In Northern Premier League Division One East.

A club spokesman said: “Whitby Town would like to thank Liam for his service to the club and wish him all the best for the future.”
