A fabulous new book about the Stags has just been published.
End of An Era – Mansfield Town: The Football League Years, by John Lomas, is a CHAD publication.

The book highlights the Stags history, with loads of excellent photos from the CHAD's archive many of which have not been seen recently, and focuses in detail on recent times including the Haslam years, the sale of the club and the team's drop into non-league football.

It is a book no Stags fan will want to be without.
