There was surprise news from Mansfield Town this morning with the announcement that first team coach Micky Moore had left One Call Stadium.
Moore played a significant part in the Stags’ survival last season as well as this year’s current respectable league position, as the club targets its highest finish in over a decade.
It would seem by the wording on a club statement that the decision has been made by the club to release him ahead of his contract ending this sumer.
On the statement, manager Adam Murray said: “We thank Micky for what he has brought to the environment here.
“Not just as a manager, but personally, I thank Micky for his support in both some very good times and also during the tough times. I can’t thank Micky enough for his dedication to me.
“As a football club, heading forward, we will now look to inject a fresh impetus to build on the progress which is being made.
“The world of football is moving at a tremendous rate and I believe we have to keep moving with its pace.” The statement ended: “The club would like to place on record its thanks to Micky for his hard work and dedication since he re-joined the Stags in November 2013.”
