Review By Martin Shaw,

LAST UPDATED FEBRUARY 2016

Since 1990, almost all games have been covered by TV cameras, and hence goals have been shown on TV channels (ITV and/or Sky). For example in the 2001/2002 season, extended highlights from 11 of Stags 46 games were shown on an ITV region or the ITV Sport channel.

So, in this review, we list all extended highlights of Stags games shown on TV before 1990, and then only live games shown on TV since 1990.
