Duncan (52), a UEFA A Licence holder, has been at six clubs in the past 12 yearsafter beginning his coaching career at Derby County.

He later joined Walsall where he enjoyed promotion to the old Division One in 2001.

He also helped to win promotions at Wolves in 2003 and at MK Dons, when they completed the double by claiming the Johnstone's Paint Trophy in 2008.

Duncan followed Paul Ince to Blackburn soon after and has coached some of England's top players, including Matt Le Tissier and Paul Gascoigne.

"I am really pleased to be here and am looking forward to the season ahead already," he told the club's official website mansfieldtown.net.

"I have a lot of experience and have worked with players from the lowest level to the highest."

"Training will be enjoyable but the players will work hard, make no bones about that."

"I know this club has a deep history with patriotic fans."

Holmes' new role at Field Mill has yet to be revealed.
