Mansfield Town have released winger Nick Hegarty, after his short-term deal expired on Boxing Day.

The 25-year-old former Grimsby and St Mirren man made just two starts for the Stags, who sit ninth in the Blue Square Bet Premier table.

Stags boss Paul Cox told the club website: "It was always Nick's main intention to play football in Australia after his two month spell with us.

"We wish him all the best for his new life down under."
