Manager Adam Murray said:  “Firstly, I’d like to thank all of the players for keeping the club in the Football League. It has been a tough few months and everyone has given their all to the cause.

“We’re at a point now where I feel the whole club needs a fresh start. There have been some tough decisions made, but decisions which have been made in the best interests of the football club.

“We now need a fresh energy, focus and a new impetus, as well as a new group [of players] to take us forward.

"We have a good young group of players and some will go and gain experience on loan early into the new season."

He added: “There could be wholesale changes. I am looking in the region of adding around 13 new players. It’s a big overhaul but something that I feel is needed as I plan the future for Mansfield Town.”
