Adam Murray has thanked supporters who volunteered to clear snow from the training pitch this morning.


Seven fans turned up to remove the snow along with youth team players.

Supporters who attended were given a free executive hospitality pass for our next home game against Dartford, as a token gesture of our appreciation.

Assistant manager/captain Adam Murray said: "It took us about three hours [to clear]. Everybody involved deserves a massive thank you from us. The club is really appreciative if their efforts and it will give us a good area to work on now."

The club would also like to place on record our thanks to Andy Sutton of AS Plant for clearing our car parks with use of a JCB, as well as Ulylett Landscape who are set to grit the parking areas tomorrow

MANSFIELD Town player/assistant manager, Adam Murray, is asking supporters to help clear snow from the club's training pitch tomorrow morning.


The first team squad have recently been training indoors at Moor Farm, courtesy of Derby County Football Club, but the hard surface is now beginning to take its toll.

"We are very grateful to Derby as they've been a massive help. But we need to get back on the grass as soon as possible as the 3G surface is not ideal on the lads' physically as we look to prepare for our next game. We need to hit the ground running and keep the momentum going," said Murray.

"We would be very grateful to supporters if they could spare us their time tomorrow."

Supporters who are able to help clear snow tomorrow morning from the training ground, located at the side of the Ian Greaves Stand, should meet Adam Murray and first-team coach Richard Cooper at the Sandy Pate Bar from 10am tomorrow.

Wheelbarrows, snowshovels and other snow-clearing devices should also be brought, but hot drinks will be provided to volunteers
