The man behind Glapwell FC has ruled himself out of the running to be the new chairman of Mansfield Town.


Colin Hancock was many Stags fans' favourite to take the reins following Andy Perry's departure earlier this week.

Speaking exclusively to Mansfield 103.2 before Glapwell's 3-1 friendly win over Parkgate, he said he was saddened by what had happened but distanced himself from joining the Field Mill outfit.

He added that the best way forward would be for Perry and the three remaining owners - Andy Saunders, Steve Middleton and Steve Hymas - to reunite and move forward with a solid business plan.

Hancock has also offered to be a mediator in talks if it is needed whilst reaffirming his full commitment to Glapwell ahead of their Evo-Stik campaign.

He said: "The first way to resolve this is to get those fellows together and try and sort out their differences, put a strategy together and then they need a number of people to get behind Mansfield Town and put them where they should be.

"They stuck their neck out and put their money where their mouth was and has been.

"And if there's anything I can do to resolve this and attract some other people into the frame at Mansfield Town, count me in."
