JOHN RADFORD<br />

Welcome to Paul Hornby,<br />

<strong>Barrow</strong>’s chairman, to One<br />

Call Stadium for this afternoon’s<br />

match.<br />

Whenever we play <strong>Barrow</strong> at home,<br />

it refreshes the memories of some<br />

entertaining matches from our short<br />

time spent in non-league, and the<br />

clashes we had against the Bluebirds.<br />

One particular afternoon stands<br />

out, in February 2013, the year we<br />

went on to win the Blue Square Bet<br />

Premier (now the Vanarama National<br />

League).<br />

Not so long before, we had played<br />

L:iverpool at One Call Stadium in the<br />

FA Cup, which seemed to launch our<br />

league campaign in to life.<br />

I spoke with Paul Cox, our then<br />

manager, in the days building up to<br />

the home match against <strong>Barrow</strong> and<br />

said, with tongue-in-cheek, that if<br />

we beat <strong>Barrow</strong> by five goals or more<br />

then I would reward him with my<br />

Aston Martin.<br />

By half-time, we were 5-1 up. It<br />

looked highly likely that the scoreline<br />

would be increased in the secondhalf,<br />

so after Paul had delivered his<br />

half-time team talk with the players,<br />

I presented Paul with his new car in<br />

the car park at the back of the Quarry<br />

Lane Stand. We went on to win 8-1,<br />

and earned the ultimate non-league<br />

crown a few months later.<br />

But that was then, and this is now<br />

and I was pleased to see us record<br />

a first clean sheet last Saturday at<br />

Leyton Orient. Well done to the whole<br />

squad for an excellent defensive<br />

performance and also to Nathan<br />

Bishop for some fine saves.<br />

Finally, I’d like to deliver my<br />

best wishes to Paul Nyland, our<br />

commercial manager, who is leaving<br />

us after today’s game following<br />

10 years’ service. Paul has been<br />

professional and hard-working in<br />

equal measure and leaves to join<br />

Woodforde’s Brewery with our<br />

highest regard. I think the COVID-19<br />

pandemic has given many of us pause<br />

to reflect and think, and ultimately,<br />

we must always do what is best for us<br />

and our loved ones.<br />

NIGEL<br />

CLOUGH<br />

Welcome to <strong>Barrow</strong> manager defensive determination and play our<br />

Mark Cooper, along with the football on top.<br />

staff, players and supporters from<br />

Holker Street for this afternoon’s<br />

match.<br />

We’ve seen today’s opponents a<br />

few times this season and the style<br />

of play which Mark implemented<br />

so successfully at his previous club,<br />

Forest Green, is starting to show<br />

through now at <strong>Barrow</strong>.<br />

They will be full of confidence<br />

following a 2-1 win against Newport<br />

County and we know how tough<br />

today’s game will be.<br />

For us, after earning a point against<br />

Rochdale to halt the losing streak,<br />

followed by another good point<br />

at Orient on Saturday, we have<br />

laid a platform to now get<br />

some more wins on the<br />

board.<br />

One factor that stuck out<br />

last Saturday at Leyton<br />

Orient was how hard they<br />

had to work to create<br />

chances. That’s not been<br />

the case in every game<br />

this season as we have<br />

conceded too easily.<br />

Orient had a couple of situations<br />

last weekend but we defended<br />

them brilliantly to deservedly<br />

earn our first clean sheet of the<br />

season.<br />

It was even more impressive<br />

when you factor in us playing<br />

for almost 20 minutes with ten<br />

men.<br />

That is the attitude that we<br />

need going into games. We’re<br />

now looking for that same<br />

We go in today’s game in good heart,<br />

despite our notable absentees, and<br />

your support this afternoon will go a<br />

long way as part of our endeavours to<br />

earn a good result.<br />

Enjoy the game.<br />

NEWSDESK<br />

COMMERCIAL MANAGER TO DEPART AFTER TEN YEARS<br />

Paul Nyland is to leave his role<br />

of commercial manager after 10<br />

years of service, following today’s<br />

match at home to <strong>Barrow</strong> in Sky Bet<br />

League Two.<br />

Paul has been instrumental in<br />

reforming the club’s commercial<br />

department in the past decade and<br />

has achieved significant success<br />

as part of the Stags’ business<br />

objectives.<br />

A well-known figure within the club<br />

and community of <strong>Mansfield</strong>, he<br />

will leave the club following today’s<br />

match with our gratitude and highest<br />

regard.<br />

Paul said: “The past ten years<br />

has been an experience I’ll never<br />

forget and to leave the club I have<br />

supported since a boy was not a<br />

decision I took lightly.<br />

“I will miss the One Call Stadium and<br />

in particular its staff, who work so<br />

hard for the success of the football<br />

club, day-in-day-out.<br />

“They have become like a second<br />

family to me, in particular: Diane<br />

Ceney, Mark Stevenson, Laura<br />

Cooper, Ryan Johnson, Lynn<br />

Millward, Jessica Burt, Ollie<br />

Jankiewicz, Tobias Rowan, James<br />

Gilliatt, Mike and Scott Merriman as<br />

well as all the staff and everyone at<br />

Football in the Community.<br />

“A special mention must go to Chris<br />

Revill, our hospitality MC, who has<br />

helped create a special experience in<br />

the 1861 Suite on a home matchday.<br />

“My gratitude of support is extended<br />

to the chairman, Carolyn, David<br />

Sharpe, Paul & Tina Broughton, Steve<br />

Hymas and Mark Burton.<br />

“It was a great privilege to be offered<br />

the position a decade ago and I’m<br />

proud to have forged special links<br />

with a number of local and national<br />

businesses, sponsors and supporters.<br />

“<strong>Mansfield</strong> <strong>Town</strong> is a special club and<br />

as I now look to begin a new chapter<br />

in my professional career, I wish<br />

everyone associated with the Stags<br />

the very best of luck.”<br />

The club places on record its<br />

appreciation for Paul’s endeavours<br />

and wishes him every success in his<br />

future career.<br />

DEFENDER<br />

RULED OUT FOR<br />

SEASON<br />

Defender James Perch has been<br />

ruled out for the season after a<br />

scan has revealed a fractured skull.<br />

The 36-year-old suffered the injury<br />

during a recent training session<br />

following an innocuous aerial<br />

challenge.<br />

The former Newcastle United player<br />

had been in excellent form in his<br />

first four games of the season for the<br />

Stags.<br />

Speaking at the time, manager Nigel<br />

Clough said: “It’s devastating news<br />

for both James and ourselves. It’s a<br />

massive blow.<br />

“As we’ve said all along, we cannot<br />

take any chances with this type of<br />

injury and are being completely<br />

guided by the specialists.<br />

“We’ll do everything we can to<br />

support James throughout his<br />

rehabilitation.”<br />

James Perch added: “I feel gutted to<br />

learn that I won’t be able to step on<br />

to the pitch again this season and<br />

help the team.<br />

“I also feel so disappointed not to<br />

play in front of the Stags’ supporters<br />

again in 2021-22, in their first<br />

season back inside the ground, and<br />

was hoping for a really productive<br />

campaign for my hometown club.<br />

“I’d like to thank the medical staff at<br />

the club, the manager and his staff,<br />

my family and the Stags’ fans for their<br />

support and well wishes.<br />

“I’ll remain as positive as possible<br />

and as one of the experienced players<br />

in the squad, I’ll be doing my utmost<br />

to support the boys in and around<br />

the training ground on a daily basis.”<br />

The club will offer its unreserved<br />

support to James throughout his<br />

rehabilitation period.<br />

Goalscorer Diego Edwards discusses<br />

Stags under-18s’ recent 2-0 victory at<br />

home to Doncaster Rovers in the EFL<br />

Youth Alliance Cup.<br />

We started the game well, and<br />

in the first-half, we played<br />

with energy and defended really<br />

well.<br />

We were building up play effectively<br />

and creating chances, but I feel<br />

we should’ve taken more of our<br />

opportunities.<br />

For our opening goal, the ball<br />

went out towards me on the<br />

wing. I switched the play to Taylor<br />

[Anderson], then it got crossed in by<br />

Darien [Wauchope].<br />

The delivery took a slight deflection<br />

and Jack [Deakin] was there in the<br />

right place at the right<br />

time to finish it and<br />

put us ahead.<br />

THE<br />

ACADEMY<br />

STRIKER NETS IN CUP WIN<br />

At the break, the coaches said that<br />

we had started well and were playing<br />

good football. They said we were<br />

working hard and told us to keep it<br />

up, as well as maybe getting some<br />

more goals.<br />

Into the second-half, and we<br />

conceded an early corner. But their<br />

cross was headed away by Ollie<br />

[Wilson], one of our other strikers.<br />

Jakub [Kruszynski] held the ball up<br />

and fed it to me, and I went one-onone.<br />

I took a big touch, the keeper<br />

kicked it at me, it hit my foot and<br />

ended up going into the net.<br />

We dug in after that and worked hard<br />

to keep the clean sheet. We managed<br />

the game well and made sure we<br />

didn’t force anything. I still feel we<br />

could’ve taken some more of our<br />

chances in the second-half to kill the<br />

game off.<br />

I feel that the defence did very<br />

well to keep a clean sheet, but<br />

also the midfield and the strikers<br />

as well, coming back to defend. I<br />

thought we defended very well as a<br />

team throughout the game.<br />

Heading forward, we want to be<br />

more clinical and take our<br />

chances. That’s what<br />

we want to take<br />

into the next<br />

game, as well<br />

as a similar<br />

defensive<br />

performance.<br />

people in the world being too sensitive, not being able<br />

to take a joke or a laugh. Live a little.<br />

SPORT: Both cricket and Formula 1 are boring.<br />

FASHION: Mixing Nike and Adidas clothes together.<br />

It should be one single brand look.<br />

WILDCARD: My girlfriend sends me to do the food shop<br />

all the time and the shops never have what she wants.<br />

FOOD:<br />

Curries. I<br />

really don’t<br />

like them.<br />

They just<br />

look strange<br />

to me and<br />

I’m not a<br />

big fan of<br />

hot and<br />

spicy stuff.<br />

Giving Football Back to<br />

Small Business<br />

At eBay, we know small business and<br />

football clubs used to be like chips and<br />

gravy, two peas in a pod – a match<br />

made in community heaven.<br />

Ironmongers, ship workers, spring<br />

makers and cobblers, all formed clubs<br />

which decades later are still prospering.<br />

But nowadays, you’d think it was all<br />

eyewatering transfers, Super Leagues<br />

and mega sponsors, detached from the<br />

humble origins of our historic clubs.<br />

That’s why eBay are proud to support<br />

300,000 small businesses who help<br />

power EFL clubs nationwide. We’ll be<br />

donating our advertising space to a lot<br />

of these businesses – on match day<br />

hoardings, around grounds and beyond –<br />

throughout the coming season, to ensure<br />

they can continue to thrive in our local<br />

communities. So, join us in giving your<br />

support to Small Business Power, because<br />

today, they need us more than ever.<br />

DEFENDER RECAPS<br />

LANDSLIDE VICTORY<br />

<strong>Mansfield</strong> <strong>Town</strong> Ladies defender Amy<br />

Dawson discusses the Stagettes’<br />

incredible 12-0 victory over<br />

Woodlands, which continued their<br />

perfect start to the league season.<br />

We went into the game thinking<br />

it would be a tough afternoon.<br />

That’s the mindset that we get into.<br />

We treat every game like a cup final<br />

as we have aspirations of getting<br />

promoted this year.<br />

We started really well, but we<br />

probably did dip towards the end of<br />

the first-half. Our play slowed down<br />

a little, which we clicked out of after<br />

half-time.<br />

But, when you have a six-goal lead<br />

at half-time, you have to be happy.<br />

Everybody played well and we had<br />

some development players in the<br />

team who stepped up.<br />

We scored some really great goals<br />

and scored from set piece routines<br />

that we’d been working on in<br />

training.<br />

Despite having the lead, I think there<br />

was still a little motivating to do at<br />

half-time. We started so well but<br />

our play did slow down towards the<br />

end of the first-half. They were really<br />

defensive and we dropped down to<br />

their pace instead of working the<br />

ball as much.<br />

There’s always room for<br />

improvement, and we<br />

showed that in the secondhalf.<br />

We moved the ball a lot<br />

quicker and used our wingers<br />

more, as we have pacey wingers.<br />

We went through patterns of play<br />

that we have been working on.<br />

Everyone is putting the work in<br />

during training and it’s paying off. It<br />

all clicked into place on Sunday.<br />

I even got myself on the scoresheet! It<br />

was from a corner, which was crossed<br />

towards the edge of the box. I just got<br />

up well and headed it – the only time<br />

I score is with my head!<br />

It was a really good win on Sunday<br />

and we just have to now keep<br />

working hard. We have a real<br />

togetherness in the camp.<br />

We have quite a few young players, so<br />

we’ll just have to keep encouraging<br />

them to carry on working towards<br />

what <strong>Mansfield</strong> <strong>Town</strong> want, which is<br />

promotion.<br />

We have to treat every game as a<br />

cup final as the league is literally<br />

anyone’s. We’ll keep our heads down<br />

and keep working hard.<br />

Community manager Gary Shaw said:<br />

“It was a shame that our Halloween<br />

event didn’t take place last year [due<br />

to COVID-19 restrictions] - we were<br />

hoping for some sort of normality by<br />

then, but it wasn’t meant to be.<br />

WHO’S WHO<br />

“Halloween is one of my favourite<br />

times of the year because we have<br />

the chance to come together as a<br />

community and we love to see what<br />

kind of costumes the children can<br />

come up with.”<br />

Junior members of the SSA can<br />

attend for FREE, with non-members<br />

costing £5 per child. The party<br />

will take place from 5:30pm until<br />

THE GOLDEN ARCHIVE<br />

From the sublime to the ridiculous<br />

and everything in between, we look<br />

back with a Stags’ hero of the past,<br />

focusing on memorable behindthe-scenes<br />

moments they will never<br />

forget.<br />

‘HIS STORY’<br />

PROJECTING A PARADE OF GLORIOUS DAYS FROM<br />

THE WORLD’S OLDEST PROFESSIONAL GROUND<br />

Continuing the season with ‘His-<br />

Story’, is former striker Terry Eccles<br />

who made 118 appearances for the<br />

Stags and scored 47 goals from 1973<br />

to 1976.<br />

During my time at <strong>Mansfield</strong><br />

<strong>Town</strong> there were no comedians,<br />

so to speak. We were all quite<br />

serious when it came to getting the<br />

job done!<br />

However, the most ridiculous stories<br />

I recall were based around my prolific<br />

ability to get injured! I remember<br />

playing for the Stags in a two-legged<br />

tie against Carlisle United. The first<br />

leg was up at Carlisle, and I was<br />

defending a corner, when their big<br />

centre-half came in to challenge me<br />

for a header and clattered me with<br />

his elbow and cut just above my eye<br />

open.<br />

I had to go off for treatment straight<br />

away and was taken to the doctor’s<br />

room. Fortunately for me, it was a<br />

really cold day which helped numb<br />

the pain. But what I remember quite<br />

vividly was the doctor – and how he<br />

was absolutely intoxicated! I could<br />

smell whiskey on his breath a mile<br />

off… and he then proceeded to stitch<br />

me up without any anaesthetic! I’m<br />

laughing now, but it wasn’t funny at<br />

the time! Anyway, I was straight back<br />

on for the second half – there was no<br />

messing about back then!<br />

I also remember I got the centre-half<br />

back in the second leg at a packed<br />

Field Mill but, more importantly, I<br />

missed a glaring diving header and<br />

we ended up getting knocked out 1-0<br />

on aggregate. The miss still haunts<br />

me to this day!<br />

As I say, I suffered many injuries. I<br />

recall the time my cheek bone was<br />

broken. We’d already been promoted<br />

with about seven matches to spare,<br />

and we were playing Cambridge<br />

United at home when we were to be<br />

crowned champions after the match.<br />

It was 1-1 and Jimmy McCaffrey<br />

played a ball into the area towards<br />

me – from which I scored. However,<br />

in the process, their centre-half<br />

volleyed me in the face, and I<br />

finished up with eight fractures in my<br />

cheekbone and my eye dropped an<br />

inch! I was taken to hospital where<br />

they had to cut my face open, my<br />

mouth, everything! I woke up with<br />

lines all over my face where they<br />

were trying to realign it with my<br />

other cheekbone!<br />

My wife came to see me a couple of<br />

days later. She could cope with what<br />

she saw in terms of the state of my<br />

face as she was used to seeing me<br />

injured. However, what she wasn’t<br />

happy with was how – when she<br />

arrived at the ward – she couldn’t<br />

get through, as there were around<br />

30 female fans outside trying to get<br />

in to see me! Shall we say, she kindly<br />

re-directed them where to go!<br />

Front cover: To celebrate<br />

our 125th year, each edition<br />

of The Stag this season will<br />

feature a different home<br />

shirt from our history on its<br />

cover. For the first time in the<br />

club’s history, Stags wore an<br />

all blue kit in 1968. Amber<br />

socks were then introduced<br />

in 1969-70.<br />
