Keith Curle's lawyers have issued a claim against Mansfield Town Football Club to the High Court in London for damages for breach of express and implied terms of his contract and a Declaration for clearance of his name.

In his first full season Keith took Mansfield to the play-off final in 2004 but before the year was out he was dismissed for the alleged bullying of a young player.

Keith has always denied the allegations and the League Managers Association who represented him through the lengthy disciplinary procedures support his claim.

Keith is now manager of Chester City and stressed to http://www.leaguemanagers.com that the claim is in the hands of his lawyers and that all his energies are now directed to doing the best possible job at Chester.
