Darlington have ended the contract of midfielder Jeff Smith following a breach of the club's rules.
The winger has been shown the door following an investigation by the club into an unspecified incident that happened last month.
Darlington's communications manager Martin Walker told the Northern Echo: "We can confirm that a disciplinary issue concerning one of our players is currently ongoing, but it is a private matter which is being dealt with internally so it is not appropriate for us to go into any detail at the moment."
Smith, who has been a regular in the Quakers starting line-up this season, is to appeal the decision, the outcome of which will be heard next week.
