It was announced on Monday that Manager Derry and his Assistant Manager Greg Abbott had parted company with Notts County and the process is underway to find their successor at Meadow Lane.

But with a crucial League One game against Scunthorpe United this weekend and the need to maintain the day-to-day running of the first team squad, Hart and Halsall have been asked to take on the role of caretaker management team in the interim period.

Hart is a former Notts County player and has held the top job at the likes of Nottingham Forest, Barnsley and Crystal Palace. Halsall, meanwhile, is one of the most respected youth coaches in the game.
