John Hemmingham, who has been working with the new regime at the Stags since the takeover, is also a former chief executive of the Sheffield Wednesday Supporters Trust.

His vast football knowledge will be a major boost for the Stags.

John, a lead member of the England supporters band, is set to jet off to the Olympics with the band.

But he will be returning to Field Mill shortly to play a leading role in the business side of the football club.

Happy chairman vows to sort teething problems
CHAD.co.uk, 28 July2008
NEW Stags chairman Andy Perry was delighted with the first game at Field Mill under the new regime on Saturday.

Mansfield Town were pipped 3-2 by Championship neighbours Derby County in an entertaining game which attracted 4,002 fans to the spruced up ground.

And, despite the odd teething problem, most went home very happy with what they had seen on and off the field.

"I was delighted with how the day went," said Perry.

"I walked around the ground and spoke to fans in the supporters' bar and in the stadium. Everybody looked very happy if a little hot.

"It was amazing support for a friendly and proves what we have always thought – we definitely have the best fans in football.

"I was pleased with the performance on the pitch against a good Derby side and we came off there with our heads held high.

"I always appreciate feedback via e-mail, text and verbal and I am aware of one or two issues such as the lack of cold drinks in the West Stand and a few points raised by our corporate clients.

"We will be looking to address these. We have an open door policy for people to make constructive comments and we will endeavour to sort out these teething problems.

"I now see things from a chairman's position and a friendly it is not just about the team having a good work out but also how the whole 'MTFC family' perform behind the scenes as well."

There is more action at Field Mill tonight as Billy McEwan's trialists get another chance to shine against Championship side Sheffield United (7.45pm).
