23rd June 2008 14:22

CHAD.co.uk, 10Jun2008
PAUL Holland is meeting with 25-goal star Mickey Boulding this week to try to persuade him to stay at Field Mill.

Full story here

Boulding, already linked with moves to Rotherham United, Lincoln City and Morecambe, is back from holiday where he has been contemplating the new deal offered to stay at Field Mill.

"I am still very positive we could keep both the Boulding brothers here for next season," said Stags boss Holland.

"And so far my transfer targets have not signed for anyone else. They would prefer to come here but can't wait forever.

"I have not been in the club much this week as there is nothing much more I can do until I am given the go-ahead and I am asking the question every day."

Statement from Stephen Booth re: Sponsors' 'boycott'
mansfieldtown.net, 10Jun2008

The so called 'boycott' really does amaze me because, other than ...

Full story here

(continued) ... ASPL (who very generously provided sponsorship last season) & the Chad (who paid £4,000 plus VAT for ground advertising), our records show that none of the organisations mentioned have made any financial contribution to the club in the past two seasons other than, for one or two, the purchase of season tickets & / or the occasional seat in the sponsors' lounge.
I should like to add my own entries to the list as B.A., Virgin Atlantic & Microsoft have indicated their unwillingness to provide the club with commercial income (with or without a change of ownership).

Statement from Stephen Booth re: Danny Phillips
mansfieldtown.net, 10Jun2008

Mr Phillips called me on the morning of 17 March 2008 ...

Full story here

(continued) ... & stated that he had £25,000 to invest in a take-over of the club. I put him in contact with the consortium which was, at the time, negotiating to purchase the majority shareholding in the club. He subsequently attended the match on the following Saturday as guest of the prospective buyers & was admitted to the boardroom.
He is quite correct in stating he didn't sign a confidentiality agreement as the agreement in place covered all members of the consortium & thus if he chose to join said consortium, thereby being party to confidential information, he was bound by this agreement. As a lawyer I'm sure he fully appreciates this.
Notwithstanding this he has had no detailed discussions with me &, to my knowledge, has had no discussions whatsoever with Keith Haslam. I am therefore bewildered by his statements at last Monday's meeting - it would seem to be a case of either pure conjecture or 'a little knowledge is a dangerous thing'.
