Stags owner in Championship vow
Mansfield Town joint-owner Steve Middleton has said the Stags can be a Championship club within 10 years.
Mansfield were relegated from League Two last season and are currently mid-table in the Blue Square Premier.
Middleton told BBC Radio Nottingham: "We've actually got a 10-year plan together and we are going to be in the Championship in 10 years time.
"It's very realistic and when you see the financial plan over the 10 years you can see it's attainable."
Middleton, alongside Andy Perry and Andy Saunders, has been in charge at Field Mill for nearly nine months.
He added: "There's over 400,000 people living within half an hour of Field Mill and 52,000 businesses.
"If we get 1% of that support it will give us gates of 4,000. If we get 2% it will be 8,000, which we can sustain a Championship football team with."
