Mansfield Town and Adam Somes part company

Mansfield Town teenage striker Adam Somes has had his contract with the Blue Square Bet Premier club terminated by mutual consent.

The 19-year-old, who made only one first-team appearance in the FA Cup last season, will pursue a new career in education and coaching in the USA.

Manager Paul Cox said: "If this is the career he now wants to pursue then we don't want to stand in his way at all.

"Therefore, we wish him all the best of luck for the future."
