The temptation proved too much, and probably the pay offer, but Evans is off along with Paul Raynor, with still 12 games to go in a promotion looking season.

Peterborough United are looking for a new manager, and Evans looks to have had his head turned from down the A1, tonight Mansfield Town have announced that both Steve Evans and assistant mananager Paul Raynor have resigned.

In a statement, on the official club website chairman John Radford said: “Whilst I am disappointed by their decision, there are no individuals bigger than Mansfield Town Football Club and the process of appointing a new management team which can lead the club to League One is already underway.’

“Mansfield Town Football Club has progressed year-upon-year in recent seasons both on and off the field.

“The club has a fantastic, encouraging and vociferous fanbase; a loyal, patient and supportive board of directors and a dedicated and hard-working team of behind-the-scenes staff.

“With this in mind, along with our current healthy standing in Sky Bet League Two, the vacant post of manager at One Call Stadium is surely one of the most attractive in the English Football League.

“Our ambitions of promotion this season remain as fervent and steadfast as ever and we will leave no stone unturned in our process of appointing the right manager to lead our talented squad of players.” he concluded.
