Holdsworth signs new Stags deal

David Holdsworth
Holdsworth was named boss of the struggling Stags in December

Mansfield Town manager David Holdsworth has signed a new contract keeping him at Field Mill until 2013.

Holdsworth, 40, initially signed an 18-month deal when he took over from Billy McEwan, who was sacked in December.

But the board have been impressed with how Holdsworth has fared and are keen to tie him to a long-term deal.

Holdsworth has guided the Stags away from the Blue Square Premier drop zone and, until a recent slump in form, they had a slim chance of a play-off spot.
