English football manager Duncan Russell Died at 59

Duncan Russell (born 12 March 1958 in London, England) was the manager of Conference National side Mansfield Town until 12 May 2011 when they decided not to renew his contract.



Russell began his coaching career at Derby County and subsequently joined Walsall where he enjoyed promotion to the old Division One in 2001. Promotions were also gained at Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2003 and at MK Dons when they also completed the double by claiming the Football League Trophy in 2008. He followed Paul Ince to Blackburn Rovers soon after and has coached some of England's top players in recent times including Matthew Le Tissier and Paul Gascoigne.


In May 2010 Russell joined Mansfield Town as assistant manager to David Holdsworth. Following Holdsworth's sacking in November of that year, Russell was placed as caretaker manager, before taking control of the team on a permanent basis. Russell's contract was not renewed at the end of the 2010/11 season and he subsequently left Field Mill.Duncan’s final game as Mansfield Town manager came at Wembley Stadium in the FA Trophy Final on 7 May 2011 which Mansfield lost extremely late in extra time to Darlington 1-0.

On 30 May 2013 he was appointed manager of Hucknall Town, although less than six weeks later he left the club as he was not prepared to drop two leagues.
