Another new manager in at Hucknall Town
HUCKNALL Town have parted company with their fifth manager in the last 12 months and placed Darren Kelk in charge of first-team affairs.
Jason Truscott, who had been in charge for just six weeks, has parted company with the club because of an unresolved issue with former employers Mansfield Town – where he was physiotherapist until November 2011.
Hucknall chief executive Steve Peat says they are in no rush to make their next appointment and has advertised for applicants on the club's website.
He said: "We had a committee meeting on Monday night and then held a meeting with Jason on Tuesday.

"Due to circumstances with Jason's former employer, we felt it was in everyone's best interests to part company.
"I have advertised the job so we are going to see who's out there.
"But I don't want to make a panic decision again.
"Darren has the job for the foreseeable future and he has experience at Evo-Stik level and good connections in the game, which he is already using to try to bring in players.
"We will see what happens in the next few weeks and if Darren does a good job he will have a good chance of getting the position.
"Obviously we are hoping the players are going to stay but we will have to wait and see."
Since Truscott's arrival before Christmas, the Yellows have struggled to field a team after a host of players left to join Grantham when former boss Gary Sucharewycz left Hucknall and then joined the Evo-Stik Premier side.
Since joining, they have conceded 31 goals in games against Rainworth MW, Loughborough Dynamo, Brigg Town and Chasetown.
With the club in financial trouble and no longer able to pay any players, they sit bottom of the Evo-stik First Division South.
Truscott told the Post: "I have spoken to so many players this week with football league experience and worked my socks off so it's disappointing.
"I couldn't have done any more in my time at the club under very difficult and traumatic circumstances."
