Mansfield Town have announced the departure of manager Paul Holland and his successor is set to be named on Friday afternoon.

Holland took charge at Field Mill in March following the departure of former boss Billy Dearden.

However, Holland could not stop the Stags dropping out of the Football League last season as they suffered relegation from League Two.

A statement on the club's official website said: "It is with great regret that we announce the departure of Paul Holland as manager of Mansfield Town football club with immediate effect.

"We would like to thank Paul for his efforts and wish him every success in the future."

Holland was also caretaker manager at Mansfield for nine days in December 2006 and his successor will be named at a press conference at 2pm on Friday.
