Notts County have confirmed that Carl Heggs has left his role as chief scout.

Heggs, who joined the Magpies in January 2010, was caretaker manager for two games this month following the departure of Paul Ince.

Martin Allen was appointed as manager last week and will bring in his own backroom team, having already promoted former goalkeeping coach Carl Muggleton to the role of assistant manager.


Conditioning coach Lee Taylor and head masseur Marcus Drake have also been released.

"This has been incredibly difficult for me personally as both Carl and Lee are good friends of mine and I know how much they have given to their roles at the club," said the club's chief executive Jim Rodwell.

"Anyone who works at Meadow Lane will tell you how enthusiastic and passionate they both are. I think the fans got a glimpse of how much working for Notts County meant to Carl during his time as caretaker manager recently.

"Obviously the new manager wants to take a slightly different approach and we, of course, respect that and will give him our full support, but I would just like to thank Carl, Lee and Marcus for all of their hard work at Notts and wish them all the very best for the future."
