Atkinson among trio released by Mansfield
John Dempster has quickly made his first moves as the new manager of Mansfield by releasing Will Atkinson, Zayn Hakeem and Henri Wilder.
Dempster was appointed as the Stags’ new boss on Tuesday following the dismissal of David Flitcroft after Mansfield failed to secure promotion to Sky Bet League One.
Atkinson scored one goal in 19 league games for Mansfield in 2018-19, while Hakeem played just a minute and teenager Wilder failed to appear for the Stags.
An option was exercised to extend the contract of goalkeeper Conrad Logan, while negotiations continue with Jacob Mellis and Ben Turner.
Bobby Olejnik and Jason Law have verbally accepted new deals.
Veteran defender David Mirfin has announced his retirement from the game.
