PAUL INCE LEAVES NOTTS COUNTY
Notts County have confirmed that manager Paul Ince has left the club by mutual consent.
The npower League One strugglers lost their fifth successive game on Saturday against Oldham and have not scored a goal from open play in their last eight matches.
Former England captain Ince, 43, only took charge last October but leaves the club in 19th place in the table.
Chairman Ray Trew said: "It is with a heavy heart that the board of directors called a meeting in the aftermath of our defeat to Oldham on Saturday.
"However, the recent run of results, which saw us win just once in March, meant that we were all in agreement that we had to address the situation.
"When we sat down to discuss the matter with Paul it became clear that we were in agreement that a parting of the ways would be the best way forward for all concerned.
"I am certain that under other circumstances things could have been very different, but we believe that this decision is in the best interests of the club."
Chief scout Carl Heggs will take charge of Tuesday night's clash with Rochdale as the board look for a permanent successor.
Ince was a success in his first job at Macclesfield before leading the MK Dons to promotion from League Two and a Johnstone's Paint Trophy final win in 2008.
He was then handed the chance to impress in the Barclays Premier League with Blackburn but only lasted six months before he was sacked.
He returned to the Dons but left at the end of last season after learning his budget would be cut and managed just 10 wins in charge at Meadow Lane.
