Stags also announced this week that physio Simon Murphy is to leave in two weeks and join Championship high-flyers Leicester City as assistant first team coach.

“Simon is a young lad, very ambitious and a fantastic physio,” said Moore. “His attention to detail is excellent and he is meticulous in everything he does. He is very professional and it’s no surprise that a club the size of Leicester want him.

“He is a sad loss but we wish him well. That’s what happens when you bring people in and nurture them and they go on and have a fantastic career.”

We revealed earlier this week that the 23-year-old had accepted the position of assistant first team physio at Championship leaders Leicester City.

“I’m a big fan of Simon Murphy and I always will be,” said our boss.

“He’s a top draw physio. He’s young, energetic, excellent at his job and deserves to progress. I think he’ll go on to even bigger and better things.

“The professionalism and the stuff he’s brought behind the scenes to the players is immense. I think Leicester City are getting an excellent acquisition and we’re losing a top boy.”

Cox added: “I think it’ll be hard to fill his shoes, because he’s not just been a good physio, he’s got a great personality and he’s good around the lads.”

Murphy’s last match with us will be our Sky Bet League Two away clash at Dagenham & Redbridge in nine days time.
