Midfielder Adam Chapman has today left Mansfield Town after mutually agreeing to part ways with the club.

The 26-year-old, who has now finished his second spell at the club, made seven first team appearances this season, but missed the last two because of a groin injury.

Manager Adam Murray told the club’s website: “Chappy (Adam Chapman) and I have sat down and mutually agreed that it was best for both parties if we went our separate ways.

“Adam is a player who has to play with 100 per cent confidence and with a smile on his face. At times, I don’t feel he has done; for whatever reason that may be.

“I have a very close relationship with Adam. I played with him [in Murray’s playing days] and we had a very good partnership on the pitch.

“As my player, he has given me everything on the pitch and has been fantastic. Personally, it was a tough decision, but one which we both felt was right.

“At the minute, Chappy is suffering with a groin injury. He’ll get his scan results on that injury this week.

“He will now have time to get his groin right and decide his next move.”
