KEITH'S 'BAD BIT OF BUSINESS'
Evennig Post, 03 September 2002

It seemed like a good idea at the time to Stags chairman Keith Haslam.

Mansfield Town wanted a new scoreboard for Field Mill.

And Leicester City had one going spare at their Filbert Street ground, following the move to the Walkers Stadium.

So Haslam paid £8,000 for it.

It was only afterwards that he discovered the cost of moving it up the M1 and installing it.

"We worked it out that it would have cost £25,000. We have had to write it off as a bad bit of business," Haslam said.

"I've asked a couple of people if they want to buy it but I haven't heard back from them."
