Neil Woods is keen to stay on as Grimsby Town's manager following the club's relegation from the Football League.

Former Mariners forward Woods replaced Mike Newell as manager in October, but was unable to lead the club away from trouble.

Grimsby's board are meeting to discuss plans for next season ahead of a campaign in the Blue Square Premier and Woods is hoping he will be retained.

Woods told the Grimsby Evening Telegraph: "I would like to continue. It was always going to be a massive job and it still is.

Supportive

"I don't know about my future, I'll have to wait and see. Whatever the chairman and the board decide I cannot fault. They've been very supportive with what I've tried to do.

"It's a long-term job. I think we've made some decent strides forward and we need to continue. I would like to continue building the foundations I've started to lay."

Meanwhile, Nathan Jarman has left Blundell Park after his contract was cancelled by mutual consent.

The 23-year-old played in excess of 40 games for the Mariners, scoring six goals, with his last appearance resulting in a red card against Macclesfield in February.
