Paul Ince Leaves Notts County By Mutual Consent

League One side on the search for yet another boss.

Notts County manager Paul Ince has left the club by mutual consent after just over five months in charge.

Ince, 43, only took over in October but the Magpies have lost five games in a row and are only two places above the League One relegation zone.

Head scout Carl Heggs will take charge for Tuesday’s game with Rochdale.

Notts chairman Ray Trew told the club website: “It was with a heavy heart that the board called a meeting in the aftermath of our defeat by Oldham.”

Trew continued: “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 forwards for all parties.

“I would like to place on record my thanks to Paul for his effort and commitment during his time at Meadow Lane.

“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 both Paul and the club.” (BBC Sport)

Whilst its true that Paul Ince hasn’t exactly set the world alight at Meadow Lane it is also worth noting that Notts County only got promoted to League One last term and they do have a fair few games in hand over clubs around them and that is due to a laudable FA Cup run that would have made a great deal of money for the bankrolled club.

For the record during his time at Notts County, Ince won 10 and lost 13 out of 29 games. Not amazing but not that bad either.
