Notts County strength and conditioning coach Mike Edwards is leaving the club.
‘Eddy’ enjoyed two spells with the Magpies, racking up well over 300 appearances and forming an important part of the backroom staff in recent seasons.
And the former Magpies captain, who was part of Steve Cotterill’s side that lifted the League Two title in 2009-10 and went on to enjoy a testimonial year, paid tribute to the supporters for their backing throughout his career at Meadow Lane.
“This place will always have a special place in my heart and the supporters are one of the main reasons for that,” he said.
“I’ve got too many special memories to mention but I have absolutely loved my time at Meadow Lane.
“The time has come for me to move on but I wish the gaffer, the lads and everyone connected with the club all the best for the upcoming season.”
Notts owner and chairman Alan Hardy added: “Mike is a legendary figure in these parts and we are very sorry to see him go.
“He has represented the club with consummate professionalism both as a player and staff member and leaves with everyone’s utmost respect.
“Mike will always be welcome at the Lane and I wish him all the very best in his future endeavours.”
